Care Bacter

Care Bacter contains bacteria on a substrate of powdered Maerl gravel, which keep fresh or seawater aquaria clean.

Mode of action:

1. Various green and filamentous algae will be greatly reduced, algae growth on aquarium panes will be retarded.
The introduced bacteria are in competition with the algae mentioned.

2. Nitrate and phosphate compounds decrease. The bacteria take up nitrate and phosphate compounds as food and are
digested by corals, respectively separated by a skimmer or filter at the end of their lives.

3. Corals and fish get more vital. The bacteria and the other contents supplement the defenses and reduce the risk of deseases esp. of Vibrio infections.

4. The aquarium appears much cleaner and organic detritus / duff is significantly reduced. The bacteria can use the detritus /
duff as food.

Non-pathogenic bacteria for humans and the environment.
Doesn’t contain any toxic materials.
No overdosing possible!
The product is not suitable for human consumption!
Avoid eye contact!
Keep away from children!

Application:
For the initial application we recommend a so-called “shock vaccination” (scoop included in the scope of delivery), which will effectively and quickly lead to a desired positive outcome:
For aquariums from 500 to 1,000 liters (132 to 264 USgal.): 10 ml (0.33 fl.oz) per week (equivalent to 4 measuring spoons) for a period of 2 weeks.
For aquariums from 100 to 500 liters (26 to 132 USgal.): 5 ml (0.17 fl.oz) per week (equivalent to 2 measuring spoons) for a period of 2 weeks.
For aquariums from 30 to 100 liters (8 to 26 USgal.): 2.5 ml (0.08 fl.oz) per week (equivalent to 1 measuring spoons) for a period of 2 weeks.
During the dosing, we recommend temporarily stopping the existing mechanical filter system and sea water skimming for 10 minutes, and to inject the dose directly into the aquarium biotope.

Normal dosage after the first vaccination:
For aquariums from 500 to 1,000 liters (132 to 264 USgal.): 2,5 ml per week (equivalent to 1 measuring spoon).
For aquariums from 30 to 500 liters (26 to 132 USgal.): 1.25 ml per week (equivalent to 1/2 measuring spoon).
During the dosing, we recommend temporarily stopping the existing mechanical filter system and sea water skimming for 10 minutes, and to inject the dose directly into the aquarium biotope.

Concentration: 10^9 CFU/g
Contents: 40 ml (1.33 oz.

Care Bacter

Care Bacter

Care Bacter is an exceptional blend of bioactive filtering organisms which was specially formulated to effectively clean both sea and freshwater aquariums, and to ensure an optimal biological balance.
Care Bacter is an ideal supplement for technical installations such as aquarium filters or powerful skimmers. Especially in marine aquariums and with an efficient flow within the biotope, its effectiveness will be clearly evident very quickly. The same applies to older aquariums, which show a lack of bacterial flora and/or an accumulation of organic matter. Here, Care Bacter improves the biological function and significantly reduces algae and sediments.

Care Bacter consists of bacteria strains, which are neither genetically altered (EC directive 200054) nor a pathogen, and work together in combination extremely well and synergistically during the water purification.
One of the strains of the bacteria acts as a decomposer, thus ensuring the complete removal of dead organic components in the aquarium (protein ? ammonium/ammonia ? nitrite ? nitrate) and thereby additionally binds the resulting nitrate. This bacteria also removes phosphate by absorbing it. This yields a highly effective water purification. The absence of phosphate and nitrate therefore prevents the propagation of algae.
The second bacteria strain is used against pathogenic bacteria of the genus Vibrio, which are extremely harmful to an aquarium biotope. Through this, Care Bacter protects fish, shellfish, corals, etc against pathogen bacteria, and facilitates their acclimatization to the aquarium. For hard coral such as L.P.S. and S.P.S. types, Care Bacter significantly reduces the risk of a rapidly progressive tissue necrosis R.T.N. Finally, Care Bacter significantly enhances the biofilm in the aquarium, and thus supports certain types of coral or soil animals.
Thereby Care Bacter demonstrates an impressive side effect: The aquarium glass panes remain clean even longer!
Additionally, Care Bacter can also be used in garden ponds, and is effective there at temperatures above 15°C.
