What is PURE+ Aquarium Filter Start Gel  

PURE+ Aquarium Filter Start Gel is a live, concentrated bacteria culture for use in aquarium filters.

The gel based solution will stick to the filter media, allowing the nitrifying bacteria it contains to rapidly colonise your filter.

Once the filter media has been coated with the PURE+ Aquarium Filter Start Gel, the beneficial bacteria within the gel will speed up the maturation of your filter media, while helping to convert ammonia and nitrite, resulting in less stressed fish.

How To Use PURE+ Aquarium Filter Start Gel?

• Dose 125ml when setting up a new filter, then top-up with the remaining gel after 14 days.

• Unscrew the cap and squeeze the contents of the bottle directly onto your filter media for best results. 

• You cannot overdose your fitler with gel.

• We always advise the addition of oxygen to your aquarium via an air pump and diffuser when using PURE+ Aquarium Filter Start Gel.

• Always perform regular water tests using a suitable test kit especially before adding fish to your aquarium.

• If a UV-C is running, switch it off when dosing and keep switched off for 12 hours after dosing.
