The essential microorganism solution for a healthy, well-balanced and efficient bacterial fauna in a tank. ZEObak contains several bacterial strains, used in combination with ZEOfood and ZEOstart building up bacteria plankton. That is absorbed by many corals. Contains several bacterial strains that form a chain to reduce unwanted substances.
This liquid solution contains several bacterial strains. The added microorganisms can be used as a food source by the corals. ZEObac consists of different bacterial strains that form a chain for nutrient reduction. An interruption of this chain leads to a disturbance and the accumulation of unwanted substances. For this reason, renewed dosing of the bacterial solution is recommended. Interruption in dosing for a long period of time will inevitably lead to a so-called monoculture. The added microorganisms work in principle as a chain reaction, which reduces substances step by step until the skimmer is able to permanently remove it from the tank. The result can be seen in the increased concentrated adsorbent in the protein skimmer the days following. It should be dosed for a period of 10-14 days after every exchange of ZEOvit (and for the initial use of ZEOvit). In order to maintain the microorganisms, we recommend an additional dose outside of this period once or twice weekly at the same dosing rate. Over dosage in a nutrient poor environment leads to a darkening of the coral tissue. This product has a limited shelf life because it contains cultures of living microorganisms. Unopened, it will last for at least 6 months if kept refrigerated. After the bottle is opened, the shelf life is approximately 3 months. Spoiled strains can be identified by a foul odor. If this is the case, some of the microorganisms are dead and the solution cannot be used. We recommend purchasing a bottle size that can be used in a 3-month period. It is better to purchase smaller amounts on a more frequent basis. Please make sure to avoid any contamination of the solution in the bottle (e.g. with aquarium water).
