The bacteria used by filtAS have proven themselves hundreds of times over in years of practical use together with the nutrient solution developed for this purpose!
They are able to settle extremely quickly on the filtAS filter packings and thus enable a maximum of effectiveness.
The bacteria are delivered under sterile conditions in glass ampoules. In this state, the bacteria are inactive and therefore almost indefinitely stable. Only the opening of the ampoules and the contact to the aquarium water activates the bacteria (including nitrifiers, nitrate reducers and facultative bacterial strains, which can convert ammonia into nitrite, nitrite into nitrate and nitrate into nitrogen).
The addition of the special nutrient solution ensures that the bacteria added can multiply and settle at maximum speed in the clean or freshly cleaned filter.
This »time advantage« brings with it a very important and desired effect: Foreign bacteria of the most diverse kind present in the aquarium water, which work clearly more inefficiently and also differently, hardly have a chance to settle in the filter!
The result is a filter colonized with the highly efficient bacteria we desire and the resulting outstanding biological filter performance!
Properties and contents of the package
- 1 ampoule of special filter bacteria + 1 ampoule of special nutrient solution for bacteria
- For inoculating newly prepared tanks and refreshing bacterial cultures in running tanks
- Sufficient for up to 1,000 l basin capacity
Please add the contents of the ampoules directly to the new or cleaned filter material before installing the filter. If this is not possible, the contents of the ampoules can also be added directly to the aquarium water, preferably near the filter inlet.
