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.
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
Dose 2 – 5ml per 1000L (264 US gal) daily, depending on nutrient concentration and animal stock level.
Aquariums with high nutrient levels should first use a phosphate remover such as ULTRA PHOS and begin BACTO ENERGY at 25% of calculated dosage.
Increase Bacto Energy dosage every 2 weeks by 10% and test water parameters until nutrient values drop to acceptable levels.
Dosage is too high when mucous develops on live Dosage is too high when mucous develops on live rock, coral, and aquarium walls.
Please make all changes slowly and carefully!
