MICROBE-LIFT/ Nite-Out II is designed specifically for aquarium waters that contain marine life. Its highly-specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures are specially formulated to eliminate ammonia via a natural biological process termed nitrification. The cultures contain in MICROBE-LIFT/ Nite-Out II will establish, promote or stabilize and maintain nitrification in aquarium waters, eliminating the toxic effect of ammonia. MICROBE-LIFT/ Nite-Out II liquid nitrifying bacteria contains select strains of Nitrosomonas, Nitrospira and Nitrobacter. Nitrosomonas oxidize ammonia to nitrite and Nitrobacter and Nitrospira oxidize nitrite to nitrate.

Ammonia Nitrite Nitrate
MICROBE-LIFT/ Nite-Out II comprises select microorganisms that are autotrophic — able to use carbon dioxide as the sole source of carbon — and are relatively slow growing, requiring specific conditions for optimum growth with typical cell divisions rates from 8 to 16 hours. Their performance and rate growth is impacted by the environmental parameters required for nitrification.
For optimum nitrification and ammonia removal, first treat your aquarium with MICROBE-LIFT/ Nite-Out II, with select cultures to reduce organic levels that may inhibit the natural nitrifications process. Because nitrification requires adequate levels of alkalinity, check the aquarium water's pH level.
Note: Saltwater slows down bacterial action. For faster results add 25%-50% more product.
• Check ammonia level in tank.
• New tanks — add 1 tsp. (5 mL.) per 10 gal. (38L.)., every other day, until ammonia level is acceptable.
• Established tanks — add 1 tsp. (5 mL.) per 10 gal. (38L.) of tank water after every partial water change as well as every time new fish are added to the tank.
• Keep out of reach of children.
• Wash hands after use.
• If eye irritation occurs, flush with water for 15 minutes.
• Do not take internally.
NOTE: Shelf life is 18 months. DON'T FREEZE. Store at room temperature. Avoid sunlight. Refrigerate 38F (4C) — 45F (7C) after opening to prolong shelf life. Shake well before using.
