Aquarium Bacteria & Bio-Starters
A new aquarium will need to grow bacteria in order to control the amount of ammonia in the water. When the beneficial bacteria are not present, what happens sometimes is called “new tank syndrome,” where fish die due to an imbalance in the environment.
The addition of aquarium bacteria, or bio-starters, can help to build the tank environment at a faster rate. Since the bacteria live on ammonia, this will start the tank off by controlling ammonia as the fish excrete it. The bio-starter is a natural product that contains live bacteria and can help set the balance in your tank, so the fish can be added with no danger of new tank syndrome.
