|What Is Filter Start?
Filter Start Dramatically accelerates the
colonisation of nitrifying and denitifying bacteria required for
correctly maturing your filters in easy to
benefit does this have?
contains the correct balance of several
groups of bacteria that are best suited to
colonise a new sterile filter in
conjunction with a stocked fish pond. This
enables stable healthy water conditions to
develop therefore a healthier environment
for your fish.
Maintaining your filter with the correct
balance of beneficial bacteria, you help to
ensure that your filter will nitrify to its
optimum, (removal of ammonia and nitrite
that fish excrete due to respiration and
digestion). Phosphates and nitrates will
also be reduced, (denitrification) which
are the main food source for blanket weed
and green water.
By maintaining and
stabilising your water parameters, your
fish suffer less stress, gill damage,
injuries heal quicker and in severe cased
fish losses are avoided. As the filters
mature in time, and the pond finds its
correct balance improved water clarity will
Filter Start Dosage....
