Specially formulated for all biological (bead) filters. Like most types of mechanical/biological filters, bead filters rely on the use of a media that provides a high surface area/volume ratio. This allows for support of the necessary amount of biomass, in the form of a biofilm, to properly remove organic and inorganic waste from the water. Within the biofilm it is possible to carry out aerobic, facultative anaerobic, anaerobic and chemosynthetic processes. Microbe-Lift Super Start contains all these bacteria capable of carrying out all of the necessary processes for optimum performance of bead filters.
When used according to dosage instructions Microbe-Lift Super Start will provide the following benefits:

  • Rapid establishment of organic removal capabilities.
  • Rapid establishment of nitrogen cycling including nitrification and denitrification.
  • Reduced build-up of residue in the filter reducing maintenance and improving filter efficiency by reducing ‚‚¦channelling‚‚½.
  • Breakdown of residual medications, like tea tree oils and formalin products which are inhibitory to most bacteria, after use.
  • Rapid recovery of filter after use of medications and antibiotics.
  • Effective over a wide pH range.
  • Reduces ammonia nitrogen levels.
  • Significantly reduces noxious odours caused by algae, fish waste and urine.
  • Reduces hydrogen sulphide, which creates strong, offensive odours.

DIRECTIONS: When starting up the filter, apply Super Start for 4 weeks.
After cleaning the filter apply for 2 weeks. Use Clean & Clear for maintenance.
