MicroBacter CLEAN (Marine) - 500ML



MicroBacter Clean by Brightwell Aquatics is a unique microbial culture and enzyme blend designed to target and clean surfaces of live rock, coral decorations, and tank walls. It can be used to combat and potentially avoid the infamous "ugly stage" often experienced after your aquarium`s first cycle.

Features:
  • For use in Marine aquaria
  • Natural and safe cleaning method comprised of a complex system of non-pathogenic microbes and natural enzymes
  • Establishes bacterial colonies that multiply and continue to clean the aquarium over time
  • Facilitates a rapid reduction of organic carbon, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate
  • Bacterial and enzymatic digestion of uneaten/undigested food, excreta, detritus, and other latent organic material, resulting in cleaner and healthier aquarium substrate (without having to physically clean or disturb the substrate bed)
  • Loosens ugly accumulations of unwanted substances and coatings which makes their removal by scraping and vacuuming much easier

Instructions & Guidelines

Important: Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of MicroBacter CLEAN (below) with 250-ml
(~8 fl. oz.) of aquarium water in a clean container prior to addition to aquarium. If using a pipette to
dispense MicroBacter CLEAN below water level of container or aquarium, be sure to thoroughly clean
pipette with fresh water prior to placing tube back into MicroBacter CLEAN bottle; failure to do so will
contaminate the product. Best results may be obtained by adding mixture to external biological filtration
system. Works particularly well with Xport. Do not add to pump intake port(s). Turn protein skimming and
UV-sterilization off for a period of 4 hours following addition to aquaria. Continue good maintenance
practices such as regular vacuuming, using purified water, and limiting the addition of unnecessary nutrients.
For normal cleaning and to
maintain a clean aquarium:
Add 20 ml (4 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [˜16 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water weekly.
For problem aquariums or to
rapidly accelerate cleaning
Add 30 ml (6 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [˜24 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water on the
first day, then add Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [˜4 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium
water daily for 2 weeks or longer as necessary until desired results are achieved.
When used in conjunction with
Razor Marine:
Use MicroBacter CLEAN first and then wait a few hours before adding Razor Marine. This will give
the bacteria time to settle into its new environment.
Notes: It is normal for clumps to form in the product and for the product and the aquarium to have an "earthy"
smell or smell "off" and for the aquarium water to become cloudy and the smell and cloudiness to
remain for many hours after using. This is due to the bacteria themselves and is an indication of
quality and is the reason it is necessary to shake product well immediately before using.

Bacteria work slowly, so full results can take up to 8 to 10 weeks for long neglected systems.
Storage: MicroBacter CLEAN does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area or refrigeration
at 50 deg F will prolong the activity, and maximize the shelf-life of the product. Keep away from heat!
