Brightwell Aquatics Reef Biofuel Liquid Carbon Source for Marine Aquaria 2L / 67.6oz Information

• Helps maintain a balanced nutrient-limited marine

aquarium by enabling the hobbyist to enhance the

rate of microbial growth and reproduction, increasing

the rate of phosphate-reduction and denitrification;

this is of particular benefit in heavily-stocked, well-fed

reef aquaria.

• Replaces "vodka method" of microbial activity-

enhancement with a completely safe and

biologically-sound, non-flammable alternative to using

vodka or ethanol.

• Indirectly benefits corals and other suspension-

feeding invertebrates by encouraging reproduction

of bacterioplankton (an important food source for

suspension-feeding invertebrates).

• Encourages polyp-expansion in all corals.

• May be used to help expedite biological filtration in

new set-ups.

• Formulated by a marine scientist.

  • Liquid
  • 2-L

Wow and whoa!

Comments: Great product but you can also dose a few mls of acetic acid (distilled vinegar from grocery store) per 50 gallons to get the same results. Btw, this is the "proprietary" formula used as a carbon source to feed beneficial microbes. It helps to have a chemistry major in this hobby ;-) In any case, Brightwell deserves to 4 stars-5 stars for their efforts to help the common aquarist.

Comments: Biofuel is a great product for reducing phosphates and nitrates slowly. Phosphates were 2.0ppm prior to dosing. After one week of dosing every 24hrs, phosphates are at .5ppm. Water looks great and all corals,inverts And fish are extremely happy.

Comments: My water quality has consistently remained at a high level with the addition of Reef BioFuel. I use it in conjunction with Brightwell's MicroBacter-7. I test for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and my test kits indicate there are zero traces of each. My corals have opened up more and look much fuller.
