Carefully selected Probiotic Bacteria that greatly help maintain water conditions. By absorbing and converting organic materials, nitrate, and phosphate, your aquariums water quality will stay perfect with Pro Bio S.

Liquid probiotic bacterial supplements help maintain and control water quality with the use of beneficial bacteria. The bacteria found in Pro Bio S has been carefully selected to transform phosphate, nitrate, and other organic compounds that will turn into biomass and then can be consumed by corals, or skimmed out of the tank. Another benefit of Pro Bio S is that you will notice less sediments build up on rocks and biomedia.

Recommended to use with -NP Pro
Amazed! By Alec on 1/8/2019Alec would recommend this product to a friendBought this with some skepticism but wanted to try it out for myself and glad I did! This little bottle brought my nutrients down quickly and made my tank look extremely clear. Also, my skimmer has been pulling out this dark ink like skimmate that it has never done before. Extremely satisfied and wanting to try more of the AF lineup.
Easy carbon dosing By Join the Revolution on 12/28/2018Join the Revolution would recommend this product to a friendEducate your self before starting carbon dosing in your tank. I have used other products but this one give you better dosing control. I would begin with 1/4 the dosage for a couple of weeks while measuring NO3 and increase by ONE additional drop.
You must have utilize an efficient skimmer in your set up or risk unwelcomed outcomes. The idea behind the product is to bring your nutrients down via adding natural bacteria and a food source to support them.
If you have really high NO3 to begin with, you may want to postpone the "fuel" part until your NO3s are in a lower range. I try to keep my N03 between 1-4ppm. Ideally 2. Also, keep you ALK between 6.0 - 7.5 dKH for best results. Your skimmer's neck and collection cup should be cleaned every 3-4 days as it will draw more organics to break down. If you do not clean you skimmer's neck and collection cup, you are asking for trouble. Keep it clean. Thanks BRS for stocking this solid brand!
Works but not meant for nano By ClowningAround on 11/7/2017ClowningAround would recommend this product to a friendI gave this product a 4 star for the fact that it is not meant for a Nano tank. Drops calibrated to 100liters will over dose if you have a 40 gallon tank and use two drops. This caused my nitrates and phosphates to be too low and created a bacterial strand of hair algae. You could fix this by buying the larger container and use a precision dosing pump to dose with ml amounts instead of drops. Once the bacteria established itself, it sure did work.
It works! By Nukedriver on 2/27/2017Nukedriver would recommend this product to a friendI started using this probiotic bacteria about two weeks ago. The results were noticeable in my skimmer in about 2 days. The skimmer liquid turned from tea colored brown to coffee colored brown. The nutrient levels have fallen and I can see it in the disappearance of brown algae that was covering my rock.
No change By WWIII on 2/19/2017WWIII wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI used Aquaforest ProBio S in conjunction with NP Pro for a little over 3 months in my 200 gallon mixed reed tank. I noticed no change in Phosphate or Nitrate readings. I kept up with regular 10% weekly water changes and dosed these 2 products. My Nitrates remained at 20 ppm and Phosphate at .030. I guess it keeps these nutrient readings from rising, but so do water changes. I was hoping for a reduction in Nitrate after a few months, but that did not occur. The product seemed to have no effect on my tank.
A must product! By Bobaloo on 1/28/2017Bobaloo would recommend this product to a friendI have purchased this product along with the NP Pro product to help me combat a problem I was having controlling weekly algae outbreaks in my reef tank. All I can say is that these products work BUT make sure you follow the instructions for the proper dosage. I'm currently using 2 drops daily of both products in my Red Sea Reefer 350 system and I no longer have those algae outbreaks AND I no longer have to use my GFO reactor anymore. I'm so glad that BRS has decided to carry these products because these products actually work!
Simple and effective By Kevin on 11/12/2016Kevin would recommend this product to a friendI've been using it for a few weeks now and have steadily seen nitrates and phosphates decline. A simple dropper every day that can be done when you feed, super easy!
you never be wrong again !!!!!! By johann g on 11/10/2016johann g would recommend this product to a friendeasyyyyyyyyyyyyy , 100% succes
Does this also feed sponges ?
Thanks for reaching out to us. A key function of PRO BIO S is to transform phosphate and nitrates to a biomass which can be easily removed by the skimmer or consumed by corals, sponges, clams and other organisms
Please let us know if you have any further questions and take care!
