Super Bugs (BRF-1A) has been designed for use in ornamental fish ponds, water gardens, fish tanks, race ways, holding tanks, and closed aquatic systems with less than 10-15% water exchange per day.
Super Bugs (BRF-1A) is a ready-to-use liquid product that contains beneficial microorganisms that degrade organic matter and reduce ammonia accumulations through a natural, highly effective process.
When Super Bugs (BRF-1A) are added to pond water, it creates a biological chain reaction by producing more quantities of natural bacteria and enzymes.
- Boosts effectiveness of biofilter
- Degrades decaying organic matter, including excess fish food, leaves, fecal matter, and sludge
- Improves water clarity
- Reduces foul smells
- Improves water quality
- Increases beneficial microbial population
- Reduces backflushing of filters
- Safe and beneficial for fish and plants
Super Bugs (BRF-1A) contains many different strands of bacteria, capable of consuming almost every different organic waste that could possibly occur in aquatic environments. The UHC (ultra-high concentrations) of these species exceed, by many times, the low yield formula sold by competitive brands.
Super Bugs (BRF-1A) is the easiest, most concentrated (approximately 300 billion bacteria per gallon) ready-to-use product on the market. The product's unique preservation method allows for a shelf life of 18 months.
Initial Seeding Dosage:
This is the first dosage and will provide a significant boost to the system. Double the maintenance dosage determined below. Many water systems will not need treatment during the cold winter months. Anticipate doing a seeding dosage once a year in early spring.
3-5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week during months when the water temperature is above 50 degrees F. Microorganisms are not significantly active when temperatures are under 50 degrees F.
5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week for systems in need of significant organic reduction and systems with high stocking densities.
4 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week is the average dosage rate. Most systems will do fine with this amount.
Handling and Storage:
Storage temperature of 40 degrees F to 75 degrees F is optimal. Freezing should be avoided, as it will change the look and smell of the bugs with a slight reduction in microbial count. High heat (above 90 degrees F) should be avoided, especially long term exposure.
Shelf life is 18 months under optimal storage temperatures.
