Bacto Reef Balls are the first fully available marine bacteria to feature nutrient control through the use of time release technology; depot controlled nutrient control.
High Efficiency Nutrient Control 
BACTO REEF BALLS contain highly effective bacteria cultures that control nutrient levels ​​and help avoid unsightly algae growth in saltwater aquariums. Such results are achieved through the use of our timed-release carrier material.
Special Composition 
The unique composition of our carrier material has been specially developed for use in seawater. It allows for a steady supply of diverse bacteria cultures to be added to the aquarium. Other materials such as normal gel acts as an additional carbon source and thus dissolves faster and makes controlled delivery impossible.
Ingeniously Simplified Dosing 
Bacto Reef Balls are super easy to use. Simply place the necessary amount of Reef Balls into your filter and replace every 2 weeks when the original sphere is dissolved. Our seawater stable polymer matrix allows bacteria to be slowly added into the aquarium. A steady supply of beneficial bacteria removes the need for daily dosing and unwanted Dosage peaks.
Natural and Reef Safe 
Bacto Reef Balls is the first bacteria-based product to feature time-release technology in a sphere. Both bacteria and carrier material are 100% reef safe and promote a healthy and natural aquarium. As soon as the bacteria is introduced into the aquarium, the bacteria begins its task and reduces nitrogens and phosphates. Our blend of bacteria has been specially developed to suit the needs of reef aquariums by providing a stable and diverse bacterial culture. Any excess bacteria becomes a food source for corals and protozoa and are skimmed by a protein skimmer.

Make sure the balls are not placed near the suction of a pump
BACTO REEF BALLS slowly dissolve upon contact with water slowly for the next 2-4 weeks. During this time, natural bacteria, as well as a highly effective enzyme solution is introduced into the water.

Fauna Marin Bacto Reef Balls 250ml

Been using these for a while now, started with half dose and now full dose, 16 balls for my total water volume. No side effects, polyps seem to extend more.

Fauna Marin Bacto Reef Balls 250ml

I operate a 75 gallon marine aquarium with a 45 gallon sump. My tanks were in good condition with good water quality and minimal algae growth. This product was of interest as an enhancement to my routine maintenance program. I have only used this product for about a month and have definitely noticed improved water clarity and a positive impact on algae control. No apparent detrimental effects to coral or fish. Internal glass surfaces remain cleaner longer.
