Super Bugs BRF-1A
Super Bugs (BRF-1A) has been designed for use in ornamental fish ponds, water gardens, fish tanks, race ways, holding tanks, and closed aquatic systems with less than 10-15% water exchange per day.

Super Bugs (BRF-1A) is a ready-to-use liquid product that contains beneficial microorganisms that degrade organic matter and reduce ammonia accumulations through a natural, highly effective process.

When Super Bugs (BRF-1A) are added to pond water, it creates a biological chain reaction by producing more quantities of natural bacteria and enzymes.

Super Bugs (BRF-1A) contains many different strands of bacteria, capable of consuming almost every different organic waste that could possibly occur in aquatic environments. The UHC (ultra-high concentrations) of these species exceed, by many times, the low yield formula sold by competitive brands.

Super Bugs (BRF-1A) is the easiest, most concentrated (approximately 300 billion bacteria per gallon) ready-to-use product on the market. The product's unique preservation method allows for a shelf life of 18 months.  


Recommended Dosage:

Initial Seeding Dosage:  

This is the first dosage and will provide a significant boost to the system.  Double the maintenance dosage determined below.  Many water systems will not need treatment during the cold winter months.  Anticipate doing a seeding dosage once a year in early spring.

Maintenance Dosage:

3-5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week during months when the water temperature is above 50 degrees F.  Microorganisms are not significantly active when temperatures are under 50 degrees F.

5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week for systems in need of significant organic reduction and systems with high stocking densities.

4 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week is the average dosage rate.  Most systems will do fine with this amount.

Handling and Storage:

Storage temperature of 40 degrees F to 75 degrees F is optimal.  Freezing should be avoided, as it will change the look and smell of the bugs with a slight reduction in microbial count.  High heat (above 90 degrees F) should be avoided, especially long term exposure.

Shelf life is 18 months under optimal storage temperatures.
