Cycling your Saltwater Aquarium
Now with Nature’s Ocean Bio-Activ ™ Live Aragonite Reef Sand, there is no waiting period or delay while waiting for bacteria to establish themselves. Both autotrophic and heterotrophic bacteria required for rapid cycling of the aquarium are already in their natural state – a BIOFILM on the sand particles. Nature’s Ocean Bio-Activ ™ Live Aragonite Reef Sand is fortified with a patented enrichment solution, QX-23™, which keeps the bacteria alive, primed and ready to cycle harmful metabolic end products the moment it is added to your aquarium. Each pound of Nature’s Ocean Bio-Activ ™ Live Aragonite Reef Sand contains more than 10 million live bacteria per pound in naturally-formed biofilms ready to biochemically cycle your aquarium and rapidly provide a healthy environment.
