OZpolish Bio-Cure works best with Soil or Sand substrate, but is not a very necessary.

Substrate Preparation:
To start a new tank, mix OZpolish Bio-Cure with Soil/ Sand (dose recommendation given in the Product Listing Description). If gravel is the substrate, sprinkle OZpolish Bio-Cure to the bottom of the tank, before spreading over the gravel on tank bottom. Make sure to wash sand/ gravel properly before using it.

Filtration:
Wash the filter media (sponge, ceramic rings, bio-balls etc.) with plain water properly. Better with hot (80 - 120°C) water. Depending on the media type, mix/ spread/ sprinkle the OZpolish Bio-Cure over the media. Then use the media inside the filter. Fit the filter. Put the decorations etc. in the tank. Fill water and turn filter on.

Microbial Incubation:
Let this setup be there for one week. Filter should be working >80% time in every 24 hours. Ensure water surface movement, or use air-pump. Ensure water temperature 25-28°C (this could be changed before introducing fishes, depends on the temperature requirement of the introduced fishes). A pinch of any fish food (Better the sinking ones) (Not the freeze died ones) should be sprinkled to this water: Once a day if tank has capacity <= 60 litres, Twice a day for 60-200 litres and Thrice a day for over 200 litres. If water is clouding, it means the microbes are over-populated. In this case, change the water until clear. After one week replace 80-90%. Do not wash filter, substrate or decorations at this stage. Let filter be running for another two days. In tenth day, scrub the aquarium glasses, do 40-50% of water change. Do not wash filter, substrate or decorations at this stage. Fish could be introduced on the tenth day. Fishes population should be half of the recommended numbers, that depends on the fish types.

If followed instructions, OZpolish Bio-Cure will speed up the water-nitrogen cycle. Make sure to acclaim fishes before introducing to this tank. After fishes are introduced, do a weekly 20-30% water change on the first two weeks. Complete fish population with remaining recommended fish count (depends on the fish types). At the transition of 3rd to 4th week, do 10-20% water change. There onward a 10-20% water change every two weeks for another 2-3 months is good (Depending on the tank performance). Increase the water change gaps there after.

During entire incubation process and there after, dose OZpolish Bio-Cure weekly as per recommended doses.
