Tropical Science Biolabs Marine-Clean Water Conditioner is the natural sludge removing system for saltwater aquariums. Made with specially cultivated sludge-eating probiotic bacteria, Marine-Clean naturally reduces organic particles caused by sludge, excess proteins, uneaten food, and fish feces. Regular use results in cleaner, clearer, and odor-free aquariums PLUS less wear and tear of your filtration system. Innovative two-part solution features sludge and detritus consuming bacteria and an oxygenating bacteria booster to increase oxygen availability and effective sludge elimination. Safe for saltwater fish, plants and invertebrates. 16 oz. treats 950 gallons. For saltwater aquariums.

Directions for Use
Always shake container before use. Add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of #1 (Sludge Consuming Bacteria) and 1 teaspoon of #2 (Oxygenating Booster) per 20-gallons of water. Visible sludge layers will begin to dissolve within 48-hours. Repeat every month or as needed.
Tropical Science Biolabs produce a highly concentrated "sludge eating" bacteria blend that provides natural solid waste and odor elimination. Sludge is digested and oxidized into natural carbon dioxide gas, which is expelled odorless into the air. In documented findings, tests showed effluent biochemical oxygen demand was improved by 25% and total suspended solids had improved 78%.
Marine Clean is also a tremendous help in reducing wear and tear and long-term destruction of expensive filtration systems by reducing harmful sulfides and organic solids.
Organic sludge competes with nitrifying bacteria for precious oxygen and clogs the filter bed, thus suffocating and inhibiting the biological filter (oxygen concentrations need to be maintained above 80% of saturation to achieve maximum nitrification rates and sludge reduction increases biochemical oxygen availability).
