Using all its experience in fish-keeping, daphbio® has selected micro-organisms and bacteria intended to fully meet the requirements of your freshwater aquarium. Micro Macro Life is an entirely biological, live bacteria product.

Micro Macro Life and Bactofresh guaranteed impact

Used in conjunction with Bactofresh, Micro Macro Life is used to:

  1.  Successfully start up your aquarium following best practice..
  2.  Reduce the frequency of water changes and manual intervention in the aquarium, while obtaining odourless, crystal-clear water.
  3.  Unparalleled, optimum absorption by plant life of fertilisers, minerals, CO₂, decomposing matter, fish droppings, waste matter of all kinds, and micro- and macro-nutrients, which are then bio-digested and redistributed to plant roots in the form of nitrogen and CO₂. Photosynthesis and root growth will be astounding.
  4. Purify and balance the water, and also help to develop the biofilm that is so highly appreciated by shrimps.
  5.  Provide ideal feed for freshwater daphnia or microfauna culture in an aquarium or pond.
