Bacteria families(Bacillus) called heterotrophs and selected enzymes exist which, during their lifecycle metabolise the phosphates and nitrates present in their environment, absorbing them into their biomass, in this way, noticeably lowering the concentration of nutrients.BIO-STARTER A & B constitute the correct nutrients based on organic carbon, specifically for heterotrophic bacterial flora, introduced by treatment with BIO-EXTRA.
