Bio Aid 100mlBio Aid is a mix of 27 different strains of heterotrophic pro-biotic bacteria. Probiotic Bacteria improve the quality of your water by digesting solid and dissolved waste in your aquarium. When added on a weekly basis Bio Aid will:
Reduce biological/ biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), this is the oxygen demand that waste, either organic, inorganic, solid or dissolved, puts on the system if not digested and removed. (I.e. polluted waters have much higher BOD/COD than clean water)
Reduce algae by removing nutrients that algae thrive on.
Digests oils and grease (often seen as oil slicks that form on the top of the water, this can be caused by a number of factors including using food with high fat and lipid content)
Digest phosphate and phosphorus
Performs heterotrophic nitrification and de-nitrification (REMOVAL OF NITRATE)
Digests bottom sediment, sludge, uneaten food and fish waste
Reduces disease causing bacteria through competitive exclusion.
Highly concentrated, Bio Aid contains over 1 billion cells of bacteria per ml that, once added to your aquarium will start to assimilate waste and clean your aquarium biologically, the way nature intended.
Within 30 minutes the bacteria wake up from their dormant state and go to work, re-producing every 10 to 15 minutes under the right conditions. Because the heterotrophic bacteria in Bio Aid are so efficient at their job, waste products from uneaten fish food, fish waste, dead plants, algae and sediment/ sludge, are broken down very quickly and the population of bacteria soon diminishes as the food source for them depletes.
Adding Bio Aid every 7 days ensures that you maintain a healthy population of probiotic bacteria in your aquarium or pond. Bio Aid can be used in both fresh and salt water and can be used in conjunction with Active Bac and Pro-Bio-Plus for added waste assimilation and disease control.
