Pure natural, processed from dried Indian almond leaves which is not cultivated with chemical fertilizer, providing natural tannins.
Superior to more refined similar products such as Atisons SPA and without the other unnecessary ingredients; Bio Lif is more popular among aquarium maintenance professionals and pro breeders where calcium and other essential minerals are added via Wonder Shells or methods (such as drip) that add essential mineral ions on a constant basis that is better for Redox Balance
Softens water and aids in maintaining a lower pH. To initially lower your pH you may need to dilute your water with Reverse Osmosis (RO) water initially, as Bio Lif is a buffer (softener, not a direct pH lowering product). This may especially be necessary when KH is above 50 ppm.
Enhance the natural coloring of Arowana, Bettas, Cichlids, Discus, Angelfish and other soft water preferring tropical fish, especially the red color of fish.
Excellent for use in breeding fish such as Bettas or as a replacement to questionable Black Water Tonics
Helps prevent dropsy, by natural bacteria absorption (anaerobic bacteria)
Naturally increases the acid level of the aquarium water (at a VERY slow rate, unlike pH lowering products such as pH Down which can crash your pH only to see it bounce back up!)
Improves disease resistance
Treats 240 gallons (40 gal. per packet)
Can be used in canister, HOB, wet dry, internal filters and more.
Better than peat
Each packet lasts approximately 2 weeks (packets can be split for smaller tanks)
Carbon use is not recommended by the manufacturer, however I have used Bio-Lif followed in 2-5 days with small amounts of carbon (about 1 teaspoon per 5-10 gallons) to control the brown/yellow tint this product (& Peat) put in the water.
In our experience with this product, we prefer a slower flow rate for slower disbursement; so placement imbedded deep in a canister filter, at the based of a Sponge filter, etc. is preferred.
