Can a carbon source(sugar, alcohol) rapidly increase the bacteria count?

What are the key main differences between nite out II and special blend?

What should be the recommended flow pattern in a biological filter? Fast, turbulent flow or slow, laminar flow? Why?

Is dissolved oxygen important in a biological filter? What is the recommended DO concentration for a biological filter? How should I meet the recommended DO level?

Does the biological filter perform better at a low or high pH?

Our bacteria are produced to thrive in any environment. Dark is not better for them. In the case of Special Blend, it contains photosynthetic bacteria that use light.

Sugar and alcohol can be used to increase bacteria count, but this is not the preferred method for us. The bacteria create enzymes needed to break down the food source. If you use something like Vodka you may establish a good sized population of bacteria, however they have adapted to feed on the alcohol. In order to feed on organic waste, ammonia or nitrite the bacteria have to change in order to better process those sources.
It is better to establish the bacteria colonies on the food source you want them to control. We recommend adding fish at the same time you add our bacteria. The bacteria will immediately start working on the waste from the inhabitants of the tank and grow to meet the demand to process those sources.

Special Blend contains many strains of beneficial bacteria that breakdown waste including hard to degrade substances like fats, grease, and glycerol that are found in fish waste and excess food. The bacteria in Special Blend can also reduce Nitrate. SB will do some nitrification, but not as effectively as the bacteria in Nite-Out II.
Nite-Out II contains only nitrifying bacteria. These bacteria process ammonia to nitrite, then to nitrate. The Nite-Out II will not waste or remove nitrate. The two products are designed to be used together to create a balanced biological filter system. Waste degraders, nitrifiers and de-nitrifiers.

We do produce some powdered bacteria. While this may be good for extended shelf life, liquid bacteia performs much better. The bacteria in Microbe-lift Special Blend and Nite-Out II liquids are live and ready to go to work. As soon as you add them to the tank they begin building biofilms and processing waste.
If your LFS tells you dry bacteria is better, they have not compared it to the effeciveness of Microbe-Lift liquids.

The bubbling on the surface after feeding your rays prawn is most likely due to excess proteins in the water from the food. Special Blend bacteria when used regularly will break down proteins.
