Bacto Energy – Specialized food source for nutrient reducing bacteria
BACTO ENERGY is a special carbon source designed to feed nutrient reducing bacteria in marine aquariums. After addition of Bacto Energy bacteria will grow rapidly and thereby will convert unwanted nutrients like nitrite, nitrate and phosphate into biomass. The bacteria will either be skimmed off or taken up by corals and filter feeders, thereby providing an additional source of natural food. *former Ultra Bak*
BACTO ENERGY is a special carbon source designed to feed nutrient reducing bacteria in marine aquariums.
- Safely reduces nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate
- Provides a reliable method for the removal of nitrogen compounds
- Directly supports denitrifying bacteria (good bacteria)
- Highly concentrated for cost-effective dosing
- Easy to dose and 100% reef safe
Daily 2 – 5 ml per 1000 liters
depending on the nutrient content and the animal stocking.
For older tanks with high nutrient values, ﬁrst carry out a phosphate reduction with ULTRA PHOS and reduce the dosage to 75%.
Increase the dosage every 2 weeks to approx. 10%, always check the current water values.
In case of occurrence of slimy deposits on the aquarium glass, and stones, the dose is too high.
Please always carry out all changes to the aquarium carefully!
