Why does BRS recommend this?
This is the perfect companion product for dry rock if you are looking to speed up the tank cycle. BRS has had very good success using it in our own tanks and recommend this product to anyone starting a new tank. It is a very effective source of live nitrifying bacteria for new tanks, quarantine tanks, water changes, or any time the biological load may increase in a saltwater system.
BIO-Spira is an essential water conditioner for setting up new marine aquariums. Contains patented and patent-pending live nitrifying bacteria that break down ammonia and nitrite, reducing fish loss in marine aquariums due to ammonia and nitrite toxicity. BIO-Spira accelerates the establishment of the bacteria necessary for successful biological filtration to prevent fish loss due to new tank syndrome. In just minutes after adding BIO-Spira to your saltwater aquarium, you can introduce your fish without exposure to dangerous levels of ammonia or nitrite. BIO-Spira can also be used after a water change, when adding new fish, or after medicating your saltwater aquarium. New shelf-stable formula requires no refrigeration.
