Filter Starter is a live culture of friendly bacteria for your filter. It contains Bacillus megaterium, B. pumilis, B. licheniformis, Paenbacillius polymyxa, Nitrosomonas spp., Nitrobacter spp., and Nitrospira spp. These bacterial species help to breakdown fish waste and prevent the build up of toxic Ammonia and Nitrite.
If left, fish waste will build up and become toxic. This treatment can be added to a new aquarium to help ‘kick-start’ the filter, when adding new fish, after a filter clean/water change, or after using a disease treatment. Suitable for coldwater and tropical aquariums.
10ml → 50 litres of aquarium water.

Shake the bottle thoroughly before use.
Bacteria starts working immediately, improving the performance of the biological filter.
Repeat dose weekly for 4 weeks when starting a new aquarium or a single dose after each water change.
