Bactoplus is a Professional Pond Bacteria.

Fish produce ammonia around the clock, this is released when absorbing oxygen through the gills.


Ammonia is formed in a toxic formwhen the pH is above 7,4.


In a biological filter bacteria convert ammonia via nitrite into nitrate.


For this conversion two kinds of bacteria are needed.


The first group converts ammonia into nitrites, these bacteria are also called ‘AOB’.


The second group converts nitrite into nitrate, these bacteria are also called ‘NOB’.

Both processes take place with the use of oxygen; hence it is important that the water flowing through the filter is rich in oxygen.

BactoPlus Filter Starter and Bacto Filter Starter gel contains both AOB and NOB and in high quantities.


During production 800 million bacteria per ml. are added to the products.


Use these products when starting a new filter, after maintenance and when having problems with the water quality. 


When the filter is easy to access and the filter media can be set dry, the Gel version of the product can be applied directly to the filter media, which is enhancing the effect.
