Product Information

Use when establishing a new filter, at the beginning of the pond season in spring, or when ammonia or nitrite are elevated. Filter Bugs is an easy-to use liquid formulation, containing a blend of Nitrosomonas, Nitrobacter, Nitrospira and supporting bacterial cultures.These bacteria will repopulate your filter with nitrifying organisms to ensure efficient biological filtration and perfect, stable water quality.

When to use:

  • Test your water using NT Labs Test Kits.
  • Measure out the required amount of Filter Bugs and add directly to the biological media within the filter. Switch off UV filtration for at least 24 hours after adding Filter Bugs to allow the nitrifying bacteria to colonise the filter and the pond.
  • Filter Bugs should be added immediately after a substantial water change or pond clean, at the beginning of the pond season, after using a medicinal treatment or adding new fish, and whenever there is a detectable concentration of ammonia or nitrite in the water. Filter Bugs can be added once per week, or more often if desired.
  • Filter Bugs can be used when Pond Salt Plus is present in the water at 'General Tonic' and 'Anti-stress' levels.

Warning:

Ammonia and nitrite are toxic to fish. Their concentrations should be 0 ppm at all times and can be tested accurately using NT Labs Test Kits. If ammonia and nitrite are present at dangerous concentrations, carry out a partial water change before using Filter Bugs. Ensure the cause of poor water quality is identified (e.g. over-feeding, insufficient aeration, etc) and resolved to avoid causing stress to your fish.

    So far there are no problems and the water is running with good force. It is a little early to say much more but it seems easy to clean.

    My second one. The first one leaked into the top chamber blowing fuse and ruining electrics. It was quite old. Chose same again due to ease of fitting and use. Has always kept water clear.

    Filter working just fine, though connections could be better. Took ages and a lot of messing about to get it to stop leaking.

    No complaints so far. Extra light is great as they stop working and you never have a spare.

    Would be useful if UV light could be switched off temporarily as I was advised this is necessary for a short period with some types of pond water cleaners
