Bacterial cultures and enzymes selected to allow the complete Nitrogen cycle, the biological reduction of NO3 and PO4 and unwanted algae, in disposable phials.
- Each pack of 12 phials, contains 3 phials of BACTERYA , 3 of BIO-EXTRA, 6 of BIO-ALGANEX.
- Each pack of 24 phials, contains 6 phials of BACTERYA , 6 of BIO-EXTRA, 12 of BIO-ALGANEX.


Aquariums are enclosed environments, in which as opposed to natural environments such as the sea, lakes or rivers, there is no guarantee of continuous change of water. Inside the tank, as in nature, pollutants and toxins are produced by the metabolism of the organisms living there. These substances must be adequately equalized to avoid harming the health of fish, plants and invertebrates. The decomposition of organic nitrogen such as, the amino acids present in waste products, in the putrefacation in organic substances and left over food, constitute a constant source of ammonia through a process known as “Ammonification”. This process is set in motion by specific bacteria which, by breaking down the amino nitrogen, frees ammonia. The ammonia molecules, produced in this way in the aquarium, are highly toxic even in low concentration for the organisms living there, and therefore to be rendered harmless must undergo two further oxidation reactions by free bacteria.
- a process called nitrification in which nitrificating bacteria plays a major part which transforms ammonia in nitrites (NO2);
- a process known as nitritition in which the nitrificating bacteria oxidise the nitrites and contributes to the production of nitrates (NO3).
The complete process shown above is known as “the nitrogen cycle”.
Nitrates in concentrations up to 20 mg/lt are not toxic for the organisms in the aquarium and their concentrations can be kept under control by regularly changing the water and/or the use of the appropriate absorbent substances in the filter. A newly set up aquarium has no micro organisms (bacteria) to set the nitrogen cycle in motion: BACTERYA is a biological liquid activator composed of selected bacteria and enzymes which allows the complete nitrogen cycle.
- It’s fast acting thanks to the double actions of the nitrificating bacteria which completes the reaction from ammonia to nitrates;
- Thanks to the presence of anaerobic micro organisms it completes the nitrogen cycle transforming nitrates into nitrogen molecules (N2);
- It accelerates the nitrification process even with BOD5 levels above 200ml oo2/l (high levels of pollution);
- Reducing pollution stops micro organisms spreading; 
- 100% efficient and easy to use thanks to the disposable phial; It can be handled without any particular precautions since it is not harmful.
A mixture of bacterial cultures selected by NITROSOMONAS spp., NITROBACTER spp. and BACILLUSanaerobes optional.
Set up or after care:

-Fresh water: one 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 50 lt of water
-Salt water: two 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 50 lt of water
Maintenance or after water change dosage:
Weekly dosage:
-Fresh water: one 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 1000lt of water
-Salt water: one 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 500lt of water
Shake phial before use, withdraw the liquid with the pipette provided. Pour the acquired quantity directly in the biological filter.
In order to survive, and to carry out their vital functions the colonies of bacterial require nutriment (carbohydrates, proteins, etc.) we therefore suggest, particularly when setting up a new aquarium, to administer BACTERYA to the fresh water aquariums after inserting the living rocks. To help them do so, you can add some drops of amino acids or a pinch of food. 

A condition necessary for the development and proliferation of organisms bred in aquariums is a low concentration of nutrients. Particularly in marine barrier aquariums, in order to allow for the correct growth of hard coral, it’s necessary to maintain the Phosphate (PO4) concentration below 0.01 ml per litre and Nitrates (NO3) below 3 ml per litre. 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-EXTRA is made up of a variety of bacteria and enzymes, specifically selected to cut down the nutritious substances in the aquarium.  
USE IN FRESH WATER: In fresh water  aquariums we recommend starting treatment two months after introducing the fish, and must be combined with REMOVER NO3. 
USE IN MARINE WATER: In marine barrier aquariums, namely  Berlinese (with Skimmer)  the treatment with BIO-EXTRA can be initiated together with the insertion of live rocks and must be combined with BIO-STARTER A&B and/or REMOVER NO3. With  BIO-STARTER A&B and REMOVER NO3, the efficiency of  BIO-EXTRA  is amplified through the addition of micro-organisms introduced through the right nutrients based on organic *. BIO-STARTER A&B assure an amazing proliferation of micro-organisms which, as a result a even greater removal of nutrients.  During the treatment with  BIO-EXTRA,  BIO-STARTER A&B  it is necessary to have efficient foaming in order to remove the excess bacterial matter from the water, and, with this the nutrients accumulated.
It acts rapidly thanks to a synergistic action of bacteria and enzymes in the reduction of nitrate and phosphate; It contains a high concentration of extremely active micro-organisms which are beneficial to the aquarium; Reducing the pollution, it inhibits the proliferation of pathogenic micro-organisms; The product remains fresh, 100% efficient, and is easy to use thanks to the single-dose phials; It can be handled without risk, being innocuous to flora and fauna; It can be handled without particular precautions as it does not represent a health risk.
A mix of bacterial culture -Bacillus (5 species) and selected enzymes.
To begin:

-1 phial  of 5ml of BIO-EXTRA for up to 500 litres of water, for 5 days then continue with the maintenance treatment
Maintenance or when the water is changed:
Dose per week:
-1 phial of 5 ml of BIO--EXTRA for up to 500 litres of water.
Useful hints:
Where necessary the dosage can be increased, paying careful attention, however, in  monitoring the level of oxygen in the aquarium.
INSTRUCTIONS: Shake phial before use, withdraw the liquid with the pipette provided. Pour the acquired quantity directly in the biological filter.
USE: In order to guarantee the treatment’s efficiency, particularly in marine aquariums,  it’s necessary that the bacteria has adequate nutrition (organic carbon). Therefore, we strongly advise the immediate use of the specific BIO-STARTER A&B nutrients, or REMOVER NO3.

Seaweed has always been a great problem for many aquarium lovers since it’s proliferation compromises both the beauty of the aquarium and the health of the organisms; it causes problems with the biological balance of the tank, causing in the most severe cases suffocation and deterioration of the plants and invertebrates. You can buy many different anti seaweed chemicals, many of which may have side effects. BIO-ALGANEX is a biological anti seaweed containing specifically chosen bacteria which helps to reduce unwanted seaweed.
- Fast working to its double action of the chosen bacteria, which takes away nutrients from the seaweed and secretes substances which inhibit their development;
- Restores the beauty of the aquarium by clearing the water and thereby allowing the light to penetrate;
- 100%effective and easy to use thanks disposable phial; Is safe to use and is harmless to flora and fauna;
- Can be used with carbon and resin filters; 
- Harmless to the higher seaweed and zooxantelle;
- Helps to maintain the natural balance of the aquarium.
Mixture of specifically chosen bacteria.

Fresh/salt water: one 5ml phial BIO-ALGANEX for every 100 lt of water.
Critical situations:
Fresh/salt water three 5ml of phial of BIO-ALGANEX for every 100 lt of water. Do this once a week for three weeks then continue with maintenance dosage.
Fresh/salt water: one 5ml phial BIO-ALGANEX for every 100 lt of water.Do this once a week until acquired results are achieved approx. 45-60 days.

Shake phial before use. Withdraw liquid using pipette supplied. Pour the amount needed in aquarium.
It is advisable to improve quality of water before starting the treatment. It is in particular essential to lower the concentration of pollutants such as nitrates (NO3) and phosphates (PO4) by frequently changing water until it reaches acceptable levels.
