Shake Well Before Using

These bacteria are compatible with biological filters and UV lights. The UV lights should be turned off for 48-72 hours after the introduction of this product. This will allow the bacteria to progress through their most active growth stage.

MICROBE-LIFT/ Special Blend can not neutralize chlorine, chloramine or heavy metals.

MICROBE-LIFT/ Special Blend works well with activated carbon and is compatible with copper based products.

Shelf Life

Unopened - 2 years
Opened - 1 year
The bacteria in this bottle must remain in this original bottle or it may lose its effectiveness if transferred to another container.

Since each bottle of MICROBE-LIFT is grown individually, color variations may exist from bottle to bottle. These variations in color are not indicative of variations in product quality. Any floating particles present are suspended biofilm which slough off the sides of the bottle. Dimpling or expansion of the container is caused by pressure differences resulting from temperature variations due to the fact that the bottle is sealed.

*Saltwater environments - the bacteria in this product will remain effective when used in marine environments with a specific gravity of 1.017 to 1.025. In marine tanks, add the aquarium salt mix and allow the water to circulate for 24 hours, then check and adjust the density. Add the bacteria after the new water has circulated for the 24-hour period.

Saltwater oceans are a highly stable environment with very little fluctuation in pH. The ocean waters dilute fish waste and organic matter. The bacteria in MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend provides the assistance needed to break down the decaying organic matter and cycle certain elements, e.g. nitrogen and sulfur, etc. which may build up in your tank.

This product is NOT a chemical. It is harmless to humans, animals, fish and plants. Since we cannot control the pre-existing dynamics of individual aquaria, the above information and instructions are subject to many variables. Many situations may be unique in nature. We ask you to e-mail us your questions at: [email protected]

MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend has a hydrogen sulfide odor which will dissipate quickly.

Caution
Keep out of reach of children. Do not use internally. If contact is made with open wounds, wash with soap and water.

Dosage Rates
A free measuring cup is packed inside this box.

Add the bacteria directly to your tank or filter.

Note: Saltwater slows down bacterial action. For faster results add 25%-50% more product.

Stocking levels/Surface areas/Oxygen

The size of your aquarium, as well as water temperatures, affects the oxygen content. The oxygen content and surface area of the tank will determine the proper number of fish for your tank. Higher oxygen levels support more stocking capacity. Before introducing any other life form, your tank should be adequately aerated to provide the oxygen needed by your fish and the aerobic bacteria contained in MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend.

Wait 72 hours after adding medications (antibiotics) before adding the bacteria.

All MICROBE-LIFT bacterial products may be used together. However when using multiple MICROBE-LIFT products, reduce the dosage rate of the 2nd product by 50%. After administrating the bacteria, monitor your pH.




Manufacturer Info

Ecological Laboratories Aquarium Supplies
Ecological Laboratories is an international biotechnology company specializing in the development and production of microbial products for the natural treatment of environmental issues associated with the various uses of water and recycling of organic matter. In 1976, Ecological Laboratories began producing Microbe-Lift, a one-of-a kind formula for use in a broad spectrum of applications in the agricultural, industrial and wastewater treatment fields. It became clear that with a little tweaking, what these bacterial formulations do on a large scale for commercial use can also be valuable on smaller scale applications such as ornamental ponds, aquariums and water gardens. In 1998, Ecological Laboratories began packaging Microbe-Lift for end-users. Ecological Laboratories uses outside testing labs for independent analysis of their products. Product testing and monitoring is done regularly as an important part of their quality control process.

Comments: In doing some research on how to improve water quality I came across this product. I was having a problem with red slime algae and the Special Blend was reportedly beneficial. Water quality seemed to improve and the red slime began to disappear about 1/2 way through the first bottle. I'm now on my second bottle and my tank has been slime free for over 2 months. It's not the only change I've made but I'm now a devoted customer.
