Step 1: Water
Add 300 ml of warm water between 100° to 120°F to your Nature Bottle. Do not add water that’s too hot, it may damage the bottle and affect performance.
Step 2: Shake
Tighten the cap and shake the Nature Bottle for one minute until all solids have dissolved and you’re left with liquid only.
Step 3: Wait
Allow the Nature Bottle to sit for 24 hours without interruption or disturbance. The liquid will thicken into a gel like consistency. After 24 hours, invert the bottle to ensure that the liquid is fully solidified. If not, wait another hour and check again.
Step 4: Activate
Remove the cap and clean off any gel that remains on the bottleneck. Using the cap as a measuring device, add 2/3 to 1 capful of Bio-Powder into the Nature Bottle followed by 150ml of lukewarm, room temperature water around 77°. Install the reaction cap onto the bottle, no shaking is required. Connect the flexible tubing on one end to the reaction cap and the other through the suction cup and onto the diffuser. Place the diffuser into your aquarium and wait.
Step 5: React
During initial use, CO2 gas output will fluctuate but overtime, the reaction speed will stabilize and slow down. The Nature Bottle will continue to work for up to 60 days depending on room temperature. Increased temperatures will speed up the reaction process and shorten the usage time.
Step 6: Repeat
When CO2 output slows down or stops completely, remove the cap and pour the liquid out of the Nature Bottle. Repeat steps 4 to 6 until the gel is fully consumed.
