Bactoreef®

Bactoreef® is a collection of live, diversified aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and nitrifying and denitrifying micro-organisms, specifically intended for reef and saltwater aquariums, ideal for starting, maintaining and seeding your aquarium. Used permanently, it provides equilibrium, particularly for NO₂, NO₃ and PO₄ (nitrites, nitrates and phosphates), helps with microfauna development, cleans and recycles impurities, and digests aquarium waste products through bio-digestion. By means of biological and nutritional competition, it prevents the development of cyanobacteria and harmful algae of all kinds – encrusting, filamentous, benthic and pelagic algae. Bactoreef clears your stones’ clogged pores and reinvigorates your sand.

Bactoreef – a few drops are enough! It is a multi-purpose and multi-function product. It performs several tasks in the aquarium: it can be used to cycle an aquarium at start-up and to maintain the aquarium throughout its life, and to feed all types of coral in your reef aquarium (LPS, SPS, soft corals, etc.), plus your live rocks and sand, and keep it all in perfect health. You will very soon see clear, bright water, especially if Microfauna Booster is also being used. From the sea to your aquarium, it’s all about life.

An aquarium with no bacteria cannot work. Life is only established in our aquariums if bacteria are present.

Bacteria’s role in a reef aquarium

LPS, SPS and soft coral need bacteria in their food for digestion and growth. Their metabolism needs bacteria for better absorption. Coral takes the nutrients crucial for its growth and well-being from bacteria. There is no point in putting more food in the tank if you don’t provide the bacteria needed to absorb it.

An entirely biological, living, potent product designed for the purpose

Wishing to develop a product specifically for reef aquariums, daphbio® worked with a coral harvester to seek out specific bacteria, from seawater only. To ensure these bacteria’s effectiveness, an organic preservation process lasting more than a year was chosen. And so Bactoreef® was born, with its broad spectrum of seawater-only bacteria, which reactivate and multiply as a matter of course once poured into the aquarium. Bactoreef® is an entirely biological product, ideal for preventing diatoms, valonia, derbesia and also cyanobacteria (the scourge of saltwater aquariums).

The core of a reef aquarium food chain

Bactoreef® can form an integral part of the food chain provided by daphbio products. Combined with Microfauna Booster® and Zoo Booster® in the start-up stages, but especially for regular aquarium maintenance, it regulates the biological nitrogen cycle, and reduces and transforms waste (detritus, organic matter). It transforms deadly toxic nitrites and regulates NO₃ and PO₄.

Usage recommendations

Bactoreef® serves to biologically clean the aquarium and keep it healthy, and to nourish the essential microfauna, bacterio-plankton and coral. Bactoreef perfectly complements the other products in the daphbio range, particularly Microfauna Booster, and even improves their performance. We recommend combining Bactoreef with:

Microfaune Booster®: For optimum purification, we recommend combining Microfauna Booster & Bactoreef. The two products’ synergy exponentially increases the bacterial spectrum, and nourishes microfauna, micro-organisms, corals and all filtering organisms.

Zoo Booster®: apart from the additional bacteria supplementing the spectrum, Bactoreef® bacteria nourish the microfauna provided by Zoo Booster. The anti-cyanobacteria kit: for optimum effectiveness, use Bactoreef® with the anti-cyanobacteria kit, then continue using Bactoreef for a further month or two.

Total Nutrition: nourishes coral, while Bactoreef® helps coral’s digestion and metabolism. Bactoreef® can be used to start all types of saltwater and reef aquarium.

Bactoreef® instructions for use

1 ml per 100 litres of tank volume every day, or every 2 days for maintenance, in the morning or the evening. Do not swallow.
