is composed with nitrifying and dénitrifying bacterial strains selected for their capacity to transform the ammonia into nitrites, the nitrites into nitrates and nitrates into nitrogen. They are guaranteed free from genetic mutations.
The work of the different bacterial strains is controlled by the genetic information included in the DNA of each cell. Strains are chosen for their efficiency and their compatibility in fresh and marine water. Each strain starts a process which is continued by another strain until the toxic nitrogen compounds (ammonia and nitrite) are broken down into harmless nitrate.
The way BIO DIGEST work. The biological filtration is rapidly set up by nitrifying bacteria :
- Nitrosomonas europea
- Nitrobacter winogradskyi
This set-up and maintain biological filtration better than randomly or bacterial fights. These bacteria convert :
AMMONIUM >>> NITRITE
NITRITE >>>>> NITRATE
The cleaning by the organic waste digestion is favored by the presence of 9 strains, in optimal proportions, of hétérotrophics bacteria including
- Paracoccus dénitrificans
- Pseudomonas stuzerii
These digest organic matter ( plant and fish wastes) more rapidly than nitrifying micro-organisms (INRA 1995) and contribute to aquarium cleaning including nitrate removal
Nitrates >>> Nitrogen
In under-oxygenated areas in aquariums.These bacteria work in team; each strain ending the work begun by another. Some are capable to synthesize the dénitrifying enzymes in aérobic. It insure thus the purification, the reduction of nitrates, phosphates and prevent the growth of algae. They avoid equally by the food competition the proliferation of pathogenics organisms and decrease thus the unexplained sickness risk.
