Super Start Bead Filter Bacteria 32 fl oz
Like most types of mechanical/biological filters, bead filters rely on the use of a media that provides a high surface are/volume ratio. This allows for support of the necessary amount of biomass, in the form of a biofilm, to properly remove organic amd inorganic waste from the water, making it suitable for fish and other normal aquatic life, facultative anaerobic and chemosynthetic processes if all the necessary bacterial species are present. Consequently, for these filters to function it is necessary to have proper numbers and distribution of species. Microbe-Lift Super Start Bead Filter Bacteria contains aerobic heterotrophs, facultative anaerobes, anaerobic and chemotrophic bacteria capable of carrying out all of the necessary processes for optimum performance of bead filters.
When starting up a filter, use Super Start once a week for 4 weeks.
