BIO-START2, remove Ammonia, Chlorine and Chloramines, and quickly activate the complete cycle of Nitrogen in single-dose phials. Each box contains 2 phials of REMOVER NH3 and 4 phials of BACTERYA.


Aquariums are closed systems, in which is not insured the continuous water renewal, contrary to natural ecosystems (seas, lakes, rivers). However, into an aquarium, as well as in nature, polluting, potentially toxic, substances are produced, because the biological processes (respiration and excretion) of the housed organisms.  These substances must be adequately maintained under specific levels, in order to don’t jeopardize the safety of fish, plants and invertebrates. This process, called water bio-conditioning, allows organisms to live safely and healthy in the aquarium ecosystems; in other words, through the water conditioner we remove, or decrease, the concentrations of potentially toxic substances, possibly adding others which are benefical.The transformation of organic nitrogen, contained into decomposing organic matter, waste food, waste products of organisms, represents a constant source of Ammonia by a biochemical process known as “ammonification”. Such process is performed by particular bacteria which, degrading the amino acids (oxidative deamination), convert the Aminic Nitrogen (-NH2) in Ammonia (NH3), free in the environment.Furthermore, fisheliminate Ammonia directly into the water through their gills. This means that the Ammonia is concentrated directly into the water, and even if the fish are fasting (e.g. in the shipping bag).Ammonia molecules originated into the aquarium are highly toxic for the housed organisms, even at low concentrations. REMOVER NH3 neutralizes toxic Ammonia by its conversion in a non-toxic molecule(aminomethanesulfonate salt), easily biodegradable by nitrification in the biological filter. REMOVER NH3 also eliminates Chlorine and Chloramine. The concomitant presence of Aloe vera extract, for its content of Acemannan and Glycosides, promotes the reinforcement of the immune system and the health of epidermis and gills. It also contributesto the reduction of the stress negative effects. Useful for the immediate start of new aquariums and for the transport of the fish.

A 5 mL phial every 200L of new water. One phial into 200 L removes about 1mg/L of Ammonia, in freshwater and marine water. The combined use with NUTROBACT and BACTERYA and/or BIO-NITRONEX, will promote a quick start of the Nitrogen cycle.  


BACTERYA is a biological liquid activator composed of selected bacteria and enzymes which allows the complete nitrogen cycle.

- It’s fast acting thanks to the double actions of the nitrificating bacteria which completes the reaction from ammonia to nitrates;
- Thanks to the presence of anaerobic micro organisms it completes the nitrogen cycle transforming nitrates into nitrogen molecules (N2);
- It accelerates the nitrification process even with BOD5 levels above 200ml oo2/l (high levels of pollution);
- Reducing pollution stops micro organisms spreading;
- 100% efficient and easy to use thanks to the disposable phial;
- It can be handled without any particular precautions since it is not harmful.

Set up or after care
-Fresh water: one 5ml phial ofBACTERYA for every 50 lt of water.
-Salt water: two 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 50 lt of water.

Maintenance or after water change dosage: Weekly dosage:
-Fresh water: one 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 1000lt of water.
-Salt water: one 5ml phial of BACTERYA for every 500lt of water.

Shake phial before use, withdraw the liquid with the pipette provided. Pour the acquired quantity directly in the biological filter.

In order to survive, and to carry out their vital functions the colonies of bacterial require nutriment (carbohydrates, proteins, etc.) we therefore suggest, particularly when setting up a new aquarium, to administer BACTERYA to the fresh water aquariums after inserting the living rocks. 
To help them do this, it should be administered simultaneously a NUTROBACT phials.
