ReeFlowers Bacteria Feeder promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to facilitate reduction of nitrate and phosphate in aquariums with low levels of dissolved carbon. Microorganisms require carbon to build tissue, proteins, and carbohydrates. When dissolved carbon is to low these beneficial bacteria are unable to grow and reproduce quickly enough to utilize nitrates and phosphates in the water column and filter. Bacteria Feeder is particularly useful in Ultra Low Nutrient (ULN) marine systems, but is also well suited for freshwater aquariums where low nutrients are needed, such as discus aquariums.


Dosing Instructions

Add 1/2 tsp (2 mL) per 26 US gallons (100 liters) every two days for tanks with a moderate bio-load. In more heavily stocked tanks up to 1 tsp (5 mL) per 26 US gallons (100 liters) can be added daily. As every aquarium system is unique, it is important to monitor nitrate and phosphate using an accurate and reliable test kit/device to ensure proper dosing. If nitrate and phosphate levels are lower than 2 ppm and 0.02 ppm, respectively, temporarily stop using Bacteria Feeder until levels are higher. Do not overdose as this will have no additional benefit and may case a bacteria bloom which can harm the aquariums inhabitants. If this occurs, continue using a protein skimmer in marine systems or use an aerator in freshwater systems to maintain sufficient oxygen levels.

85 ml bottle - 20 drops = ~1/4 tsp (1 ml)
250 ml, 500 ml & 1000 ml bottles - 1 cap = ~1 tsp (6 ml)
