PNS ProBio™ contains a beneficial, naturally-occurring microbe. It is found in freshwater, marine and brackish environments (in the water column, the sediments and even in the guts of animals such as corals and earth worms). This highly adaptive photosynthetic bacterium balances nutrient cycling in all types of agricultural systems. Though it performs a variety of ecological functions, it is most oustanding in its ability to balance nitrogen cycles (it performs nitrogen fixation, nitrification, denitrification and assimilation of inorganic nitrogenous compounds). It also balances carbon cycles, reducing BOD (it performs carbon fixation and can digest organic compounds (including cellulose and lignin). As it consumes biological waste products, it simultaneously serves as a wholesome food source for bacterivores ranging from amphipods to filter-feeding invertebrates.
Purple non-sulfur bacteria have for long been used successfully to remediate water quality in highly intensive aquaculture operations. Moreover, they are increasingly used to amend water assets in aquaponic applications. Their probiotic qualities are shown to suppress disease in numerous cultured plant and animal species. PNS ProBio™ helps to maintain an ecologically stable captive habitat, enriches live food items and forms direct, beneficial associations with the root systems and foliage of both terrestrial and aquatic plants.
This unlabeled bulk package contains cultures of R. palustris that are grown in the container. The container consists of a collapsible polyethylene cube that is protected in a rigid carton. Because the container is collapsible, there is minimal intake of air or contaminates during dispensing. Precise dispensing is facilitated by a spigot (included).
Ideal for use on stores/farms/labs or for rebranding/use as an ingredient in other products.
PNS ProBio™ (5 gallon)
When used as an aquarium/aquaponic inoculant, add one 5-gallon cube for every 16,800 gallon system water (1.25 ml product/gallon system water) in an area of high flow. For best results, cut ultraviolet/ozone sterilization for the first 24 hours of each application. May be re-dosed regularly as desired for continuous feeding or nutrient and dissolved organics management.
Highly palatable and nutritious, PNS ProBio™ is readily consumed by virtually all small live food organisms (ciliates, rotifers, copepods, brine shrimp, etc.). For gutloading/enrichment, add 5 ml/gallon to zooplankton cultures approximately one hour before feeding out.
Contains reconstituted water (distilled water with restored natural minerals), 100% organic growth medium and live purple non-sulfur bacteria (Rhodopseudomonas palustris).
