Every milliliter of ACTIVATE for Saltwater supplies millions of live nitrifying bacteria to seed or re-seed the biological filtration system of the aquarium. New aquariums and established aquariums under stress, from recent additions of fish, use of medications, or neglected maintenance, typically have problems with biological filtration. Either the beneficial bacteria that convert ammonia to nitrite and nitrate are not yet present, or they have been reduced in number due to stress factors.
With regular use, ACTIVATE for Saltwater encourages the establishment of additional bacterial strains that help to eliminate sludge and to lower both nitrate and phosphate.
Directions: (1 capful = 5ml)
Shake well before using. For new aquariums, if ammonia, nitrite or water quality problems are present, use 1oz (30ml) per 20 gallons weekly for 30 days. When adding new fish or after medicating, use 15ml per 20 gallons once. To prevent water quality problems and reduce maintenance, use 10ml per 20 gallons weekly.
