Why does BRS recommend this?
The Red Sea Reef Mature Pro Kit will help any tank with its biological filtration cycle. At Bulk Reef Supply we have used many different cycle starting products. The Reef Mature Pro kit is one of the few that just simply works well and is a very easy system to follow.
Get your new reef tank off to a good start with the Red Sea Reef Mature Pro Kit. Each kit provides nitrification as well as nitrate and phosphate reduction to help with the biological maturation of your reef tank
Each kit contains:
- 100 mL Nitro Bac
- 100 mL NO3: PO4-X
- 100 mL kH Coralline Gro
- 60 mL Bacto-Start
A concentrated blend of nitrifying and de-nitrifying bacteria spores to help cycle the live rocks, substrate and the bio-media in a new tank.
A unique complex of carbons and other organic bonded elements that are used by anoxic bacteria for the accurate control of algae nutrient (nitrate and phosphate) levels.
kH Coralline Gro
A concentrated marine buffer complex, fortified with the specific minor and trace elements that promote the growth of coralline algae and other beneficial micro-fauna.
A balanced blend of nitrogen and phosphorus components that simulate the natural waste products of an active aquarium, enabling a controlled development of the aerobic and anoxic bacteria.
Good learning tool By FRANK on 5/26/2018FRANK would recommend this product to a friendI bought this kit for a 112 gallon aquarium with dry base rock. Had to buy 2 kits to treat my aquarium but you can just buy extra nopox instead of 2 kits that's the only thing I ran out of. Get a test kit. It kinda worked for me but i did not use live rock so did not get the results the instructions said i would. I just got through the 21 days and continued to use nopox then added cleanup crew 1 week later 2 clowns. Everything seems to be perfect now on week 5. But still have not introduced corals yet probably 2 more weeks.
Does not mature the tank in 21 days By Waynaldo on 2/28/2018Waynaldo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI brought this for my 170 Reefer,
With two local fish stores helping me calculate how much stuff to use. Day 7 ammonia and nitrate was off the scale and no nitrite showing. (Using red sea test) day 15 ammonia nitrite and nitrate are all showing high,
Would not recommend just cycle the old way
Good Idea But Didn't Work For me By Jim on 2/20/2018Jim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI read the reviews and thought this would be a great way to cycle my tank. I followed the instructions precisely but ammonia and were nitrates were always much higher that the instructions said they should be. Not sure where the process went wrong...
Allows for fast cycling of saltwater tank By Rocky on 2/12/2018Rocky would recommend this product to a friendEach kit is good for upto 65g of water.,so you may need more than one kit..follow directions..you will cycle faster..very good product,as with All of redsea stuff.
Very simple and easy By Dustin on 9/22/2017Dustin would recommend this product to a friendI bought this not really sure if it would help or not. All my friends said the tank will cycle in 4 to 6 weeks and you don't need this. I bought the product anyway and was pleasantly surprised with it. My tank is a 45 gallon redsea but I used the directions and dosed my tank like it was a 25 gallon tank. Within 17 days my tank was cycled and ready to go. The directions give you a range of 'your tanks ammonia should be around this mark at this date but it might be more or less'. My tank was off those marks but at days 17 I was reading 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and 20 nitrates. The directions were very easy to follow and dosing was simple. You do need some sort of test kit to test the water to see where you are but other than that this was simple and easy. I waited the full 21 days before I put some fish in there but was confident that when I did put them in there they would be fine.....and they are.
Made for chemists By Jon on 8/20/2017Jon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought this a first time aquarium owner thinking it would make cycling easy. in reality, I found it quite difficult to use as you have to follow instructions precisely. "Adding improper amounts of any supplement can have negative effects." Few things are happening as the instructions said they would which makes me think I didn't do it correctly. I'd recommend another product because I'm not a chemist
Wanna cycle your tank in a quarter of the time? By Michael on 3/30/2017Michael would recommend this product to a friendBuy this stuff. It really works. I cycled 120 gal display tank, 120 lbs of dry rock as well as some live sand and was ammonia and nitrite free in 10 days. So far, the system is holding up great and I couldn't be happier. It takes a little bit of work, but it's worth it.
Awsome product By Garnett on 1/10/2017Garnett would recommend this product to a friendFollow the directions and you'll succeed. Also depending on your tank size you may need to order more than one. It's a great product; after numerous attempt at keep anything alive in my tank I found this product. Start with this product and finish with the best
Works great By Martin on 10/22/2016Martin would recommend this product to a friendThis does great, works perfect def speeds up the process.
Good Product By John on 9/26/2016John would recommend this product to a friendIt's a good way to cycle and start a low nutrient tank. It is recommended to run a skimmer while you use this program
Save Da Damsels! By Bobaloo on 9/10/2016Bobaloo would recommend this product to a friendI'm sure all of us at one time bought some inexpensive damsels to either get our tank's biological cycle going OR to test to make sure the fish don't go "belly up" by morning before adding the livestock you really want. Why sacrifice livestock when you can use this product to get your tank's biological system up and running. Once you use this product, I guarantee you will ALWAYS use it when establishing your next new reef tank.
good product By R. H.T. on 5/12/2016R. H.T. would recommend this product to a friendI would say this is pretty straight forward and easy to use. Water parameters have been on target with what they tell you to expect. Thumbs up.
How many would I need for a Innovative Marine 40 gal cube.
You will need 1 kit which works up to 65 gallons. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
When during the cycle do you add the macro algae to the refugium? I didn't see anything in the literature about this. Thanks.
This product doesn't specifically address use with a refugium. I would bear in mind that if you are planning to use the NO3PO4-x that this will be in direct competition for the nutrients that macroalgae would use. I wouldn't usually plan to add macroalgae until you have fish or other tank inhabitants that will produce nutrients for the algae to uptake.
Would you run a biopellet reactor while using this product
Have a great day!
