New MicrōBacter Start XLM from Brightwell Aquatics — The Bacteria for Quick Marine Tank Startups

MicrōBacter Start XLM 15 X is a highly concentrated, selective complex of LIVE, extremely effective microbes and enzymes that rapidly reduces the concentrations of organic nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrite in marine and brackish ecosystems, leading to greatly improved water quality and much faster cycling. Used as directed, it will cycle a new marine aquarium in as few as 5 to 7 days.

It is a super-concentrated 15X suspension of LIVE non-pathogenic microbes, specifically formulated to extremely rapidly establish biological filtration in new aquarium setups, and to enhance the rate of nitrification in existing systems.

  • Crucial for rapidly re-establishing nitrification bacteria in case of an ammonia or nitrite emergency (such as when medications have killed or damaged the bacteria bed)
  • Particularly useful in aquaria with high population densities, and when adding new fish
  • Re-establishes nitrifying bacteria after cleaning rocks and surfaces, and after the use of medications
  • Supplied in a proprietary base that provides for maximum longevity and a shelf life of 1-1/2 years, unlike competing products, which have shelf lives of 60 days or less

MicrōBacter Start XLM does not require refrigeration during normal shipping or storage. The normal storage temperature range is 34°F to 80°F, and it will withstand one or more freezes and higher temperatures to 95°F for a few days at a time, allowing for normal shipping temperatures. We do recommend refrigeration at 50°F, when possible, to prolong shelf life. (Competing products cannot stand any freezes and must be refrigerated below 50°F at all times, requiring shipping with ice or refrigerated containers)
