Keep your water clean and clear with the Microbe-Lift Special Blend Salt & Fresh Water Eco System in a Bottle. Specially formulated to treat marine or freshwater tanks or ponds, it harnesses the cleaning power of beneficial bacteria to lower ammonia and nitrates, remove odors and cloudiness, break down protein foam and organic residue, and stimulate plant growth. You can use it as a maintenance formula to reduce the need to change the water as often, and as a new tank starter for biological cycling and boosting. Simply add directly to the water and let the specialized bacteria do all the heavy lifting. It’s 100% safe, non-toxic, and chemical-free so you can use it with all fish, plants, invertebrates, and around the whole family, even the furry ones.

Key Benefits
  • Beneficial nonpathogenic bacteria keep water clean and clear, works in marine or freshwater tanks or ponds.
  • Self-activated formula reduces ammonia, nitrates, odors, biological waste, protein foam, and cloudiness.
  • Supports healthy fish and naturally promotes plant growth by enhancing their ability to absorb nutrients.
  • Perfect as a maintenance formula to reduce the number of water changes needed, or as a new tank starter.
  • Made in the USA with no chemicals, toxins or pathogens so it’s safe for all aquatic animals, pets, and the whole family.

Avoid contact with eyes. Flush immediately if needed. Use Gloves to avoid contact with skin and open wounds. If exposed, wash with soap and water. Do not use internally. Keep out of reach of children.

This product can be a bit smelly at first, but don’t worry, that’s just the natural sulfur (hydrogen sulfide) that’s made by the good bacteria in the bottle. And if you have copper base products or activated carbon, you can still use this product safely. The formula cannot neutralize chlorine, chloramine or heavy metals.

The size of your aquarium, as well as water temperatures, affects the oxygen content. The oxygen content and surface area of the tank will determine the proper number of fish for your tank. Higher oxygen levels support more stocking capacity. Before introducing any other life form, your tank should be adequately aerated to provide the oxygen needed by your fish and the aerobic bacteria contained in Microbe-Lift Special Blend.

These bacteria are compatible with biological filters and UV lights. The UV lights should be turned off for 48-72 hours after the introduction of this product. This will allow the bacteria to progress through their most active growth stage. Microbe-Lift Special Blend has a hydrogen sulfide odor which will dissipate quickly.

    Strong smell but it's perfect

    By on

    It smells really bad, but it got the cycle going and really helped even things out. I say it's a fair trade.

    Got the tank squared away in a day

    By on

    I had to medicate my entire tank, and killed all of my beneficial bacteria. This microbe lift product got everything back in order very quickly. My tank cleared within 24 hours, and I can see the biofilm starting to build back up already. Great product, highly recommend.

    Let’s see how this goes.

    By on

    So...day one; Yes, the smell is strong. The way people spoke of it, though, I expected way worse. I did sniff the open bottle for science. Yes, it wasn’t a great idea, but I had to know. It’s been about an hour, and I can still smell it a bit in the room. I’ve turned my air supply up and increased the oxygen levels, so I should be good (the bacteria growth consumes a ton of oxygen in the water, apparently). Fingers crossed. Will update in the morning.
