API Quick Start 473ml

When setting up a new aquarium it has always been recommended that no fish are added until the tank has had time to cycle (or grow healthy bacteria) which can take up to 21 days. Whether it’s a new aquarium, a new filter or a large water change, the absence of good bacteria can cause harmful ammonia and nitrite to build up from fish waste, often resulting in fish loss or “new tank syndrome”. Without enough healthy bacteria to breakdown these harmful chemicals the result is most often heartbreak. The problem is that when setting up a new tank no one wants to wait all that time before adding the fish! That’s where API Quick Start comes in, with its unique, patented nitrifying bacteria you’ll never have to sit and look at an empty tank again, or face the loss of your fish due to ammonia and nitrite poisoning. The bacteria in Quick Start are scientifically proven to quickly consume ammonia and nitrite to help prevent “new tank syndrome.” Quick Start allows immediate addition of fish to new freshwater or saltwater aquariums and is beneficial to use in any instance where there has been a significant reduction or loss of beneficial bacteria from the aquarium.

API Quick Start instantly introduces good bacteria to a new aquarium which allows immediate introduction of fish. Suitable for use in Cold water, tropical and marine fish tanks, the bacteria in API Quick Start will instantly begin to process the harmful nitrites and ammonia to ensure water quality remains stable and healthy for new fish.
