Microbial culture and enzyme blend designed to target and clean surfaces of aquatic tanks
- Naturally combats the stage at which the tank starts to season after initial cycling
- Loosens unwanted accumulations of substances & coatings making removal much easier
- Establishes bacterial colonies that multiply & continue to clean the aquarium
- Rapid reduction of organic carbon, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate & phosphate
Brightwell Aquatics MicrōBacterCLEAN is a selective complex of extremely effective microbes and enzymes that not only reduce the concentrations of organic nitrogen, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, and organic carbon in all marine ecosystems, but make maintenance easy by actually loosening accumulations and coatings.
Notes - It is normal that clumps may form in the product and the product and the aquarium may have an “earthy” smell or smell “off” and the aquarium water could become cloudy and the smell and cloudiness could remain for many hours after using. This is due to the bacteria themselves and is an indication of quality and is the reason it is necessary to shake product well immediately before using.
MicrōBacterCLEAN does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area or refrigeration at 50 deg F will prolong the activity, and maximize the shelf-life of the product. Keep away from heat.
Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of MicrōBacterCLEAN (see below) with 250-ml (~8 fl. oz.) of aquarium water in a clean container prior to addition to aquarium. If using a pipette to dispense MicrōBacterCLEAN below water level of container or aquarium, be sure to thoroughly clean pipette with fresh water prior to placing tube back into MicrōBacterCLEAN bottle; failure to do so will contaminate the product. Best results may be obtained by adding mixture to external biological filtration system. Works particularly well with Xport. Do not add to pump intake port(s). Turn protein skimming and UV-sterilization off for a period of 4 hours following addition to aquaria.
While utilizing MicrōBacterCLEAN continue good maintenance practices such as regular vacuuming, using purified water for additions, and limiting the addition of unnecessary nutrients.
For normal cleaning and to maintain a clean aquarium: Add 20 ml (4 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [≈16 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water weekly.
For problem aquariums or to rapidly accelerate cleaning: Add 30 ml (6 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [≈24 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water on the first day, then add Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [≈4 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water daily for 2 weeks or longer as necessary until desired results are achieved.
May be used in combination with Brightwell Aquatics® Razor MarineTM. If you use the two, please use MicrōBacterCLEAN first and then wait a few hours before adding Razor MarineTM. This will give the bacteria time to settle into its new environment.
Bacteria work slowly, so full results can take up to 8 to 10 weeks for long neglected systems.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
