    A Complete Eco-System in a Bottle

    For SALT & FRESH WATER

    Features and other benefits:

    • Dramatically reduces need for water changes
    • Reduces the frequency of cleaning
    • Good for salt and freshwater fish
    • Chemical free!
    • A new tank starter for biological cycling and boosting
    • An organic waste degrader
    • Naturally stimulates plant growth
    • Lowers ammonia levels and biologically reduces nitrates
    • Removes odors and clears cloudy water
    • Biological maintainer for established tanks
    • Enhances ability of plants to utilize light, water and nutrients
    • Breaks down residue on gravel, plants ,rocks, etc.
    • Breaks down protein foam

    These bacteria are compatible with biological filters and UV lights. The UV lights should be turned off for 48-72 hours after the introduction of this product. This will allow the bacteria to progress through their most active growth stage.

    MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend can not neutralize chlorine, chloramine or heavy metals.

    MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend works well with activated carbon and is compatible with copper based products.

    Since each bottle of MICROBE-LIFT is grown individually, color variations may exist from bottle to bottle.  These variations in color are not indicative of variations in product quality. Any floating particles present are suspended biofilm which slough off the sides of the bottle. Dimpling or expansion of the container is caused by pressure differences resulting from temperature variations due to the fact that the bottle is sealed.

    *Saltwater environments - the bacteria in this product will remain effective when used in marine environments with a specific gravity of 1.017 to 1.025. In marine tanks, add the aquarium salt mix and allow the water to circulate for 24 hours, then check and adjust the density. Add the bacteria after the new water has circulated for the 24-hour period.

    Saltwater oceans are a highly stable environment with very little fluctuation in pH. The ocean waters dilute fish waste and organic matter. The bacteria in MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend provides the assistance needed to break down the decaying organic matter and cycle certain elements, e.g. nitrogen and sulfur, etc. which may build up in your tank.

    This product is NOT a chemical. It is harmless to humans, animals, fish and plants. Since we cannot control the pre-existing dynamics of individual aquaria, the above information and instructions are subject to many variables. Many situations may be unique in nature.

    MICROBE-LIFT/Special Blend has a hydrogen sulfide odor which will dissipate quickly.

    Available Sizes:

    • 4 fl. oz. (118 mL.) (SBH04) Treats a 30 gal. tank for 16 weeks.
    • 8 fl. oz. (251 mL.) (SBH08) Treats a 65 gal. tank for 32 weeks.
    • 16 fl. oz. (473 mL.) (SBH16) Treats a 75 gal. tank for 46 weeks.

    Caution

    • Keep out of reach of children.
    • Do not use internally.
    • If contact is made with open wounds, wash with soap and water.

    Specially Formulated For Rapid Ammonia & Nitrite Reduction

    MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II is designed specifically for pond waters that contain marine life. Its highly-specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures are specially formulated to eliminate ammonia via a natural biological process termed nitrification.  The cultures contained in MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II will establish, promote or stabilize and maintain nitrification in pond waters, eliminating the toxic effect of ammonia. MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II liquid nitrifying bacteria contains select strains of Nitrosomonas, Nitrospira and Nitrobacter.  Nitrosomonas convert ammonia to nitrite and Nitrobacter and Nitrospira convert nitrite to nitrate. MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II comprises select microorganisms that are autotrophic-able to use carbon dioxide as the sole source of carbon-and are relatively slow growing, requiring specific conditions for optimum growth with typical cell division rates from 8 to 16 hours. Their performance and rate of growth are impacted by the environmental parameters required for nitrification. They are also highly oxygen-sensitive, requiring high dissolved oxygen levels (greater than 2 mg/L) to achieve maximum growth rates. Nitrite is produced by beneficial bacteria in the pond and the oxidation of harmful waste ammonia excreted by fish. Even though nitrite is not as toxic as ammonia, it is still very damaging to the health of fish.
    • Initiates nitrification
    • Promotes stable nitrification
    • Provides stable cold weather nitrification
    • Safe for use around plants and animals

    Available Sizes

    • 16 oz. (NITE16) Treats a 500 gal. pond for 14 months.
    • 32 oz. (NITE32) Treats a 2,500 gal. pond for 5 months.
    • 1 gallon (NITEGAL) Treats a 5,000 gal. pond for 11 months.
