BACTO ENERGY is a special carbon source designed to feed nutrient reducing bacteria in marine aquariums.
Safely reduces nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate Provides a reliable method for the removal of nitrogen compounds Directly supports denitrifying bacteria (good bacteria) Highly concentrated for cost-effective dosing Easy to dose and 100% reef safe
Dose 2 – 5ml per 1000L (264 US gal) daily, depending on nutrient concentration and animal stock level.
Aquariums with high nutrient levels should first use a phosphate remover such as ULTRA PHOS and begin BACTO ENERGY at 25% of calculated dosage.
Increase Bacto Energy dosage every 2 weeks by 10% and test water parameters until nutrient values drop to acceptable levels.
Dosage is too high when mucous develops on live Dosage is too high when mucous develops on live rock, coral, and aquarium walls.
