NitraClean boosts entire chain of biological degradation of nitrogen
– especially the processes 3, 4 and 5.
Application and Dosing
Even the CS NitraClean can be applied to the tank alone (if source of bacteria and required oxic, hypoxic and anoxic zones are ensured), we highly recommend to use this product along with R.A.N.N. inoculation chamber and bacteria source ANN 9505 BioCat.
The initial dose should be ca 3 ml / 100 l water / week.
It may be then gradually increased until nitrates concentration decreases to zero or until bellow mentioned overdose symptoms occur. The optimal dosage in highly
populated tanks may be even higher than suggested one and its adjustment
is always the matter of experiment.
If nitrates concentration decreases to zero, product dosing shall be lowered immediately.
If overdosed, certain amount of active substances is not utilised by
nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria and remains freely utilizable for the other lower
organisms in the tank - various bacteria, algae and cyanophytes, causing
the formation of their colonies, especially if artificially doped muds
or sands are used.
Limit the dosage or even temporarily interrupt product
application and wait until the situation improves. The unfavourable
situation may last even weeks, because primarily algae generate metabolic
nutrient reserves for a rather long time.
