*Live all-natural nitrifying bacteria scientifically proven to prevent "new tank syndrome"
*Lets you add fish to your fresh- or saltwater aquarium immediately

Patented, all-natural Quick Start contains nitrifying bacteria scientifically proven to prevent "new tank syndrome." With Quick Start, you'll add your fish to your aquarium water immediately and start enjoying your aquarium creation even faster! This convenient water treatment liquid immediately starts the nitrogen cycle in your aquarium, limits toxic ammonia and nitrite in aquarium water, and helps prevent fish loss. Use Quick Start in established aquariums to help maintain an active biological filter.

Quick Start bacterial additive has an extremely long shelf life and requires no refrigeration. For freshwater and saltwater use. 16 oz treats up to 470 gal.

Perfect for use in conjunction with a chlorine and chloramine remover, such as Drs. Foster & Smith Chlorine Neutralizer.

All-natural liquid water treatment allows instant addition of fish to a new aquarium when all necessary conditions are met, including proper pH and water temperature, effective filtration, and the addition of a water conditioner to remove chlorine or chloramines.

Live nitrifying bacteria immediately start the nitrogen cycle in your aquarium.

Also limits toxic ammonia and nitrite, and helps prevent fish loss.

In a new aquarium, harmful ammonia and nitrite build up from fish waste, often resulting in fish loss or new tank syndrome. The nitrifying bacteria in Quick Start quickly consume ammonia and nitrite by immediately establishing the biological filter to help prevent new tank syndrome. The unique, patented bacteria in Quick Start also help to maintain an active biological filter in an established aquarium. Does not require refrigeration.

When to use:
Use when starting a new aquarium, adding new fish, changing water, changing filter media, after medicating, or whenever ammonia or nitrite are detected.

Use the API dosing cap on bottle. Shake well. Add 10 ml per 10 U.S. gallons (38 L) of aquarium water. For saltwater aquariums, double the dose.
