Brightwell Aquatics

• 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

Does the Job

REVIEW
Works as described, but will not work unless you have a protein skimmer, tried to use in quarantine tank no results. But works well in show tank, my results were 1/2 oz. per day puts my 90 gallon at a range of 20 to 40 ppm. Only reason 4 stars is no working unless you have a protein skimmer.

Phosphate Buster

REVIEW
Wow, I tested my phosphates as I had a hunch they were running high. Hanna phosphate checker showed 0.17, I dosed a cap full into my 100g and the very next day test showed 0. Next time I think I will dose a 1/2 cap as it worked so good.

Wow and whoa!

REVIEW
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 an...Read More
