Note: Prodibio utilizes glass vials which excel greatly over plastic containers when it comes to oxidation and contamination. Please read the "How to use the product" instructions that are included with each kit to properly break the glass vials. All vials are filled with argon or nitrogen instead of oxygen. Lack of oxygen within the vial allows the bacteria to remain dormant until the liquid is put in the aquarium. The dissolved oxygen in the aquarium will awaken the dormant bacteria.
Great low effort option for carbon dosing By jent on 2/4/2016jent would recommend this product to a friendI am happy to see BRS now offers this product. I have been using it for a while on my tank. While it is not as tunable as some other carbon dosing, this is way simpler to use. I have been using it for a long time, and have been very happy. I am considering switching though for the following reasons:
* It's not very granular in dosing, being every 2 weeks and a vials amount makes it hard to adjust as you need to increase or decrease your dosing levels
* I now have a dosing pump that can make it easier to do daily dosing of carbon
That said, I have used it with great results over the last 9ish months. And plan to use the remaining 3 months worth of supply I have before I change my carbon dosing routine.
My final suggestion to others would be to purchase this rather than the "BioClean". I personally don't think dosing the "marine and freshwater" bacteria really does much to enhance this product. Allowing this to be a cheaper option, giving you the most bang for the buck.
