Bead Filter Bacteria

For ALL Bead & Biological Filters

Like most types of mechanical / biological filters, bead filters rely on the use of media that provides a high surface area / volume ratio. This allows for support of the necessary amount of biomass, in the form of biofilm, to properly remove organic and inorganic waste from the water, making it suitable for fish and other normal aquatic life. Within the biofilm it is possible to carry out aerobic, facultative anaerobic andchemosynthetic processes if all the necessary bacterial species are present.

Consequently, for these filters to function, it is necessary to have proper numbers and distribution of species. Microbe-Lift Super Startcontains aerobic heterotrophs, facultative anaerobes, anaerobic and chemotrophic bacteria capable of carrying out all of the necessary processesfor the optimum performance of bead filters.

  • Rapid establishment of organic removal capabilities
  • Rapid establishment of nitrogen cycling including nitrification and denitrifaction
  • Reduces buildup of residue in the filter, decreasing maintenance and improving filter efficiency by avoiding channeling
  • Rapid recovery of filter after use of medications and antibiotics
  • Breakdown of residual medications, like tea oils and formalin products, which are inhibitory to most bacteria, after use
  • Effective over a wide pH range
  • Significantly reduces noxious odors caused by algae, fish, waste and urine
  • Reduces hydrogen sulfide, which creates strong, offensive odors
