aquavitro® seed™ will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome". seed™ is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrates and nitrites.
The bacteria used in competing products are inherently unstable. The conditions necessary for their growth and development fall into a very narrow range of temperatures, pH, organic loads, etc. When any of these parameters are not strictly within the proper range, the bacterial culture quickly crashes and dies. seed™ does not contain any of these short-lived bacteria. The species of bacteria in seed™ are a unique blend, specifically developed for hardiness and their ability to adapt to a wide variety of environmental conditions. The strains thrive in both fresh and saltwater.
seed™ contains both nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria, a blend found in no other product. Additionally, seed™ contains facultative bacterial strains which are able to adapt to either aerobic or anaerobic conditions.
Shake well before use. Turn off UV/ozone. Use 5 mL for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 5 mL for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days.
Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days. For optimum biofilter performance, use 5 mL for each 80 L (20 US gallons) once a month or with each water change and whenever introducing new fish or whenever medicating an aquarium.
Product shelf life is 4 years from date of manufacture, see date on package.
