Bacteria Supplements

Bacteria supplements help aquarium cycling, biological filtration, and waste reduction by adding beneficial bacteria to aquarium systems.

Why use aquarium bacteria supplements? In a fish tank, bacteria remove ammonia, nitrite, and nitrite. A new aquarium must go through an aquarium cycle, when beneficial bacteria that will consume fish waste byproducts grow and spread. A beneficial bacteria aquarium supplement speeds up the process.

Bacterial supplements are also great for established tanks, especially alongside carbon dosing. A carbon source feeds the bacteria, which then rise in population. The bacteria consume waste, like phosphates, alongside the carbon, and then are eaten by coral or skimmed out. This results in clean water and healthy, growing coral.
