TUNZE Care Bacter is an exceptional blend of bioactive filtering organisms which was specially formulated to effectively clean both sea and freshwater aquariums, and to ensure an optimal biological balance.
Care Bacter is an ideal supplement for technical installations such as aquarium filters or powerful skimmers. Especially in marine aquariums and with an efficient flow within the biotope, its effectiveness will be clearly evident very quickly. The same applies to older aquariums, which show a lack of bacterial flora and/or an accumulation of organic matter. Here, Care Bacter improves the biological function and significantly reduces algae and sediments on extremely well and synergistically during the water purification.
One of the strains of the bacteria acts as a the composer, thus ensuring the complete removal of dead organic components in the aquarium (protein> ammonium/ammonia>nitrite>nitrate) and thereby additionally binds the resulting nitrate. This bacteria also removes phosphate by absorbing it. This yields a highly effective water purification. The absence of phosphate and nitrate therefore prevents the propagation of algae.
The second bacteria strain is used against pathogenic bacteria of the genus Vibrio, which are extremely harmful to an aquarium biotope. Through this, Care Bacter protects fish, shellfish, corals, etc against pathogen bacteria, and facilitates their acclimatization to the aquarium. For hard coral such as L.P.S. and S.P.S. types, Care Bacter significantly reduces the risk of a rapidly progressive tissue necrosis R.T.N.
Finally, Care Bacter significantly enhances the biofilm in the aquarium, and thus supports certain types of coral or soil animals.
Thereby Care Bacter demonstrates an impressive side effect: The aquarium glass panes remain clean even longer!
Additionally, Care Bacter can also be used in garden ponds, and is effective there at temperatures above 15°C.
