NMI+ Aquaculture Nitrifying bacteria is a blend of nitrifying bacteria that has been isolated from functioning freshwater and saltwater aquatic systems.
Pure Aquatics grow these bacteria in Australia to ensure you get the most stable and pure cultures available.
Each strain is grown individually and then carefully blended in sterile conditions under laminar flow to ensure the purest culture, free of contamination with the ultimate in bio-security in mind.
NMI+ is produced and bottled in a sterile laboratory for ultimate biosecurity. NMI+ is used to inoculate or condition biofilters quickly and effectively.
NMI+ contains unique strains of microbes that perform both ammonia and nitrite oxidation.
Pure Aquatics have isolated these strains and blended them to create a superior nitrifying microbial mix to allow you to start your systems quickly and reliably.
NMI+ Aquaculture Nitrifying bacteria is suitable for both fresh and marine culture systems. Safe for fish, crustaceans, molluscs and invertebrates
Dose rate guide:
Biofilter inoculation – 1ml per 100L
When seeding biofilters, you can pre-condition your biofilter by applying NMI+ and specific nutrients
in a fishless cycle prior to stocking.
Pure Aquatics Bloom nutrient mix is a source of naturally derived nutrients, trace elements and minerals that significantly boosts the growth rate of nitrifying bacteria. Use Bloom along with ammonium chloride and sodium nitrite for an effective fishless cycling regime.
Fishless cycling requires that ammonia and nitrite levels are maintained at suitable levels to culture the nitrifying bacteria. Continually measuring and increasing the amount of ammonia added daily will accelerate bacterial reproduction and development on the biofilter media.
Apply the recommended amount of bacteria to your biofilter and then add ammonia and nitrite sources to maintain levels of between 2-5ppm of ammonia and nitrite. Quantitative dose rates are based on the daily consumption of nutrients and applied accordingly.
Pure Aquatics provides support during your biofilter start up phase to ensure daily dosing is maintained to develop a strong biofilter in the minimum amount of time.
