Bactedrakon - filter bacteria

Natural filter bacteria for all freshwater aquaria

Contains a specially formulated, pure natural blend of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria, which are essential for the biological balance in the water. The bacteria are getting active immediately after addition to the aquarium water.

  • Prevention of water clouding
  • Rapid conversion of toxic ammonia (below pH 7.5 ammonium) and nitrite into non-toxic substances
  • Accelerated decomposition of organic waste
  • Stabilization of the biological balance
  • Safe for human, animal and the environment

As it can be learnt from professional operators of communal and industrial sewage treatment plants, the degradation bacteria of a sewage treatment plant compete for space and nutrients the same way as any living organisms in any other biotope. From the viewpoint of a microbiologist, a fish tank is only a smaller clarifying tank. Without interference from outside, after time, a more or less well functioning bacterial flora establishes itself, which from our point of view (fast and most effective degradation of pollutants) does not work as optimal as it could. For that reason, selected and optimised bacteria strains with high degradation performance are added to the system on regular base to influence the microbiologic population as desired. With Bactedrakon, you can now treat your fish tank the same way as the professionals. For that reason, we recommend the application of Bactedrakon not only for the tank setup and after filter cleaning but also in regular intervals to establish a most efficient bacteria population in your fish tank and filter.

Kein Nitrit, kein Ammonium

Hier wird es beim Einfahren und beim Wasserwechsel verwendet. Kein Plan, ob es ohne genauso funktionieren würde, aber mich überzeugt die Begründung von Doc Kremser. Im 30l Nano zB jede Woche beim WW 1ml davon, 2ml Ferrdrakon, 3ml Aquadrakon. Pflanzen wachsen, Fische gesund, Wasser Glasklar.
