Seachem Pristine uses a non-chemical and natural methods, to improve your water quality. It provides bacteria that break down excess food, waste and detritus in freshwater and marine systems. It will also reduce excess nutrients (e.g. ammonia, nitrates, & nitrites) that fuel the growth of nuisance and disease-causing organisms. Pristine increases water clarity and promotes overall better health for the aquatic environment.
The bacteria in Seachem Pristine will thrive in fresh and salt water aquariums and will utilize a large range of organic compounds, including fats which cause unsightly films. Unlike traditional nitrifying bacteria this bacteria can adapt to harsh and low oxygen environments
Shake well before use. Turn off UV. Use 1 capful (5ml) for each 40L. Then use a maintenance dose of 1 capful (5ml) per 80L with additions of livestock or the disruption of the biofilter through cleaning or medications. Antibiotics should be removed with fresh carbon and a water change before adding bacteria. Allow 2 or 3 days for the bacteria to become established before using UV sterilizers or ozone. Recurring problems with high nutrients can indicate overstocking, overfeeding or inadequate filtration.
