Our Microbe-Lift Rock & Substrate Cleaner speeds the biological breakdown of slow to degrade organic waste matter from tank bottoms that may become toxic to turtles. In fact, this rock and substrate cleaner is 80% faster than bacterial products alone. As organic solids accumulate on the tank bottom they begin to break down, releasing toxic gases and by-products to the surrounding environment. This rock and substrate cleaner biologically degrades bottom organic sludge and muck, reducing or eliminating the potential harmful gaseous compounds, and helps to clarify your tank water at the same time. In addition to helping to degrade fecal matter, this cleaner improves filtratio, cleans turtle shells and limbs and helps prevent shell rot.
Initial Dosage (heavy build-up): For substrate which has ¼" or more of solids build up, apply 2 tsp. (10 mL.) of MICROBE-LIFT/Rock & Substrate Cleaner per 10 gal. (38 L.) of tank water. Use as directed every other week until substrate is clean then follow Substrate Maintenance dosage schedule below. MICROBE-LIFT/Rock & Substrate Cleaner works best when used with MICROBE-LIFT/Bacterial Water Balancer.
Substrate Maintenance Dosage: For substrate with less than ¼" of solids build up, apply 1 tsp. (5 mL.) of MICROBE-LIFT/Rock & Substrate Cleaner per 10 gal. (38 L.) of tank water. Use as directed monthly. If build up exceeds ¼" follow Substrate Cleaning initial dosage schedule.
MICROBE-LIFT/Rock & Substrate Cleaner will discolor your tank water for 48-96 hours after application. The length of time to clear the discoloration will depend on your filter system.
