    I really need advise on the PRODIBIO range. I am on the last stretch of starting up my tank. I need to know what will be the best one to use START-UP or BIODigest?

    I read the info on PRODIBIO's site as well as a couple of threadt on MASA. I need to know how many vales will be required for my tank (+/- 750L)

    If possible: I need to have it couriered to me (lack of suppliers in Middelburg) and if any sponsor will help me in regards to this, I will gladly appreciate a qoute.

    Yes it does contain biodigest as well as ammastop but will it be recommended only to use biodigest or do you need the full package (START-up)

    Use both but remember not to run your skimmer for 12hrs after dosing as then you just wasting your money. Even better why not use microblift special blend? It stinks like hell but works just as good.

    they are a bit pricy and you may need quite a few vales as you have a big system. can also take a even better alternative and go with Special blend. works like a bomb

    Well the one startup pack has 12 vials & you use both every 15 days so that will last your cycling period then just keep on adding biodigest there after.

    its best to get them separate
    Bio-Digest treats 1000L per vial every 2 weeks
    Bio-Optim which is the food source treats 200L per vial every 2 weeks
