About Bacto Energy 250 ml

Bacto Energy 250 ml helps Reduce Nutrient-Reducing Bacteria in Reef Aquariums Fauna Marin Bacto Energy is an additional source of carbon that feeds the nutrient-reducing bacteria of aquariums with marine life. It supports the denitrifying process of the bacteria (good bacteria) and effectively reduces nitrite, nitrate, and levels of phosphate. Bacto Energy 250 ml is also an effective method to get rid of nitrogen-based compounds. Keep away from children. Avoid use on animals that are meant to be eaten. Do not inhale or swallow.

Dosage Recommendation:

Everyday 2-5 ml for 1000 Liters depending on the nutritional content and the amount of animal stocking. For tanks that are older and have significant nutrient levels, first perform the reduction of phosphate using ULTRA PHOS and reduce the dose to 75 percent. Increase the dose every two weeks, to approximately. 10%. Always verify the water's current values. In the event of slimy deposits on aquarium glass and on stones, the dosage is excessive. Make sure you make all adjustments to your aquarium with care!

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
