Fresh-water anti-cyanobacteria kit
Anti-cyanobacteria treatment for a fresh-water aquarium.
Eliminates algae in your aquarium, and works effectively to fight against cyanobacteria.
This product is 100% effective against cyanobacteria, red algae and green algae.
Cyanobacteria – act quickly!
Cyanobacteria are a real hazard in freshwater aquarium keeping. Green in colour with blue tinges, they adhere to the substrate, algae and plants in an aquarium, and release cyanotoxins. Cyanobacteria proliferate very quickly, and eventually start to kill your aquarium’s occupants. This often results in a crash, especially if the owner is away for any length of time.
Consequently, once they first appear in your aquarium, we recommend you act quickly, and apply the daphbio® anti-cyanobacteria freshwater treatment which should bring the infestation to an end.
Effects of the daphbio® anti-cyanobacteria kit
The cyanobacteria will start to show signs of weakness from day four of the treatment. They shrink in volume and number as they start to die off. We recommend that you siphon the cyanobacteria and residue from your aquarium at this stage.
In the majority of cases, treatment needs to run for 5 or 6 days to completely eliminate the cyanobacteria, but if need be, you can continue the treatment for a further 5 days.
Once the treatment has ended, daily use of Bactofresh will ensure your aquarium is once again magnificent.
Our anti-cyanobacteria kit, available in 250-ml or 500-ml sizes, comprises one bottle of Bactofresh and one bottle of anti-cyanobacteria bacteria, to effectively combat cyanobacteria.
