The BORNEOWILD BACTER CRYSTAL is a substrate additive and at the same time a water conditioner which improves soil condition, water quality, health and growth of the organism and colonizes the filter system with beneficial bacteria. Unlike many other products which contains many species of dormant bacteria that may not get fully activated, BACTER CRYSTAL uses only species which can survive in packaging, storage and be activated fully.
BACTER CRYSTAL contains an extremely high concentration of bacteria in dormant state, approximately 1.5x10^9 CFU per 1gram. When laid beneath the gravel, the bacteria forms a microorganism layer which prevents the growth of anaerobic species that causes smelly and blacken substate. This allows aquatic plants to develop their roots properly and thus, grow healthily. It accelerates organic decomposition and supplies enzyme which activates the growth of other beneficial bacteria in the filter. It is able to remove organic C, NH3, NH4, NO2 and even NO3 which few other species of bacillus are capable to achieve.
BACTER CRYSTAL also contains a rich dose of natural, health improving, water polishing and conditioning additive which is made up of more then 90% calcium montomorillonite clay. The Montmorillonite clay is one of the 67 edible minerals known as 'Living Clay', which are among the highest and richest natural form of mineral elements on earth. It is essential to the functions of organs and reproduction of enzymes in the body.
The special feature of the montomorillonite also allows BACTER CRYSTAL to work in 2 ways: adsorption and absorption. Being negatively charged (-ve), BACTER CRYSTAL attacts and binds with positively charged (+ve) matters like a magnet, including bacteria, toxins, wastes, chlorine, heavy metals, ammonium and other contaminant etc. The clay particles expand while absorbing these sustances and eventually becomes 'filterable', which effectively detoxify and polish the water at the same time.
Apart from these benefits, BACTER CRYSTAL also releases many essential minerals that benefits organisms, aiding them to digestion, growth and resistant to diseases.
Benefits and Functions:
Supplies essential minerals
Prevents anaerobic pockets from forming in the substrate
Colonizes and jump starts the biofiltration process in new aquarium
Enzyme activation of benefitial microganism in substrate and filter
Accelerate Organic decomposition
Improves and stabilizes water quality
Removes chemicals, medicine residue, chlorine, heavy metals, ammonium and many other contaminants quickly
Neutralizes harmful bacteria
Restrains the growth of blue-green algae when sprinkle directly on the algae.v
Allow young fries to grow better
Destresses fishes in a new environment
Improves health, skin/scale luster & color of fishes
Using BACTER CRYSTAL:
1) Use in New Planted Aquarium Set Up
Apply BACTER CRYSTAL evenly to the base layer of the tank before filling up with soil. Use 1 bottle for a 90cm aquarium.
You can also add 2g of BACTER CRYSTAL per 100L as a strong bio-starter, either into the filter/sump or directly into the water.
2) Use in Aquarium / Pond Maintenance
Add about 1g to 100-200L of water weekly. Mix well with aquarium/pond water before applying. You will notice that the water will turn cloudy initially but will result in much cleaner and clearer water in a few hours.
* Shake Well before Use.
* Keep Dry for remaining Bottle.
