Brightwell Reef Biofuel is carbon Source for Promoting Rapid, Natural Phosphate & Nitrate Reduction in all Marine & Reef Aquaria
" Helps maintain a balanced nutrient-limited marine aquarium by enabling the hobbyist to
enhance the rate of microbial growth and reproduction, increasing the rate of
phosphate-reduction and denitrification; this is of particular benefit in heavily-stocked,
well-fed reef aquaria.
" Replaces "vodka method" of microbial activity-enhancement with a completely safe and
biologically-sound, non-flammable alternative to using vodka or ethanol.
" Indirectly benefits corals and other suspension-feeding invertebrates by encouraging
reproduction of bacterioplankton (an important food source for suspension-feeding
invertebrates).
" Encourages polyp-expansion in all corals.
" May be used to help expedite biological filtration in new set-ups.

Dosage
Medium- to High-nutrient Systems: Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 189 litres of aquarium water daily. Monitor concentrations of phosphate and nitrate with accurate test kits; phosphate and nitrate should eventually become immeasurable (or nearly so) when a balance is reached between the rates of nutrient-input and nutrient-assimilation. Thereafter, switch to "low-nutrient" dosage (below).
Low-nutrient Systems: Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 378 litres of aquarium water daily. With time, hobbyists may determine that decreasing the dosage and/or dosing frequency by up to 50% sufficiently maintains a low-nutrient environment. During changes in biological filtration or when increasing the aquarium bioload, dose 1 drop per 189 litres daily for one week, then resume "low-nutrient" dosage.
