- Vibrant Aquarium Cleaner - Reef Formula - Underwater Creations
Say Hello To Sparkling Aquarium Water
Developed and used by one of the most reputable aquarium service companies, Underwater Creations, the all-purpose aquarium cleaner that removes algae, cloudy water, and dirty deposits that can form on your rocks and sandbed. For years people have been asking if they would sell it, and Underwater Creations teamed up with a group of scientists to create a consumer-based version now known as Vibrant.
- Combats cloudy water and algae
- Can utilize all current filtration
- Safe with fish, coral, and invertebrates
Two Sizes Available:
8oz Vibrant - Reef Formula
16oz Vibrant - Reef Formula
Cleaning Mode - Add 1mL of Vibrant per 10 gallons of aquarium water once every week.
Maintenance Mode - Add 1mL of Vibrant per 10 Gallons of aquarium water once every two weeks.
Bryopsis or Turf Algae Treatment - Add 1mL of Vibrant per 10 Gallons of aquarium water twice every week.
Since every aquarium system is different, the number of treatments may vary before results can be seen. In many cases only a couple doses will be needed to see changes taking place, however, others may find that a handful or more may be required.
Ingredients - Cultured Bacteria Blend, Amino Acids, Vinegar, RO/DI Water
Disclaimer - Vibrant can leave your tank looking crystal clear, giving you the illusion that you do not need to perform routine maintenance, which can lead to issues. It is highly recommended that you use Vibrant in conjunction with regular water changes and maintenance.
Awesomeness!!! By james on 11/24/2019james would recommend this product to a friendFor anyone considering dosing vibrant. I’ve been fighting hair algae for some time now. Did 30% bi weekly water changes, rinsed food and ran gfo and carbon. I’m also running a regal 250sss on a 120. At heavy bioload it’s rated for 250. But I couldn’t beat the algae from hell. Skimmate was inconsistent at best normally closer to none or flooding my cup. Started dosing vibrant a little over a month ago and cut down to 20% water changes. Now the hair algae is less then half of what it was and fading and my skimmer is a rockstar. This stuff is awesome and I’ll be using it for now on.
This stuff is amazing By Carl on 11/24/2019Carl would recommend this product to a friendI had become lazy and allowed my nutrient levels to rise, causing nuisance algae growth and noticeable damage to some corals. So about a month ago I began a complete “reset” of my ~ 300g system. This included: multiple aggressive sand-sift water changes, completely draining and cleaning my (filthy) refugium, adding a Clearwater CW-300 algae turf scrubber, adding “a ton” of Brightwell and Marine Pure bio-bricks, cubes, and balls to my sump, cleaning filter socks twice a week, acid-washing my RO/DI and SW source water barrels and hoses, and daily dosing Brightwell Phosphate-E, Microbacter7 (and/or Stability). I also resumed treating with the Red Sea NOPOX Algae Control Program. I’ve seen steady progress. Then two days ago, after running out of the liquid bacteria additives, I tried a single dose (30 ml) of Vibrant, exactly as instructed. Today I did another sand-sift water change, digging deep and cleaning hard-to reach places. HOLY MOLY MY SAND BED HAS NEVER BEEN THIS CLEAN. I am completely shocked and thrilled. I know that my other efforts are paying off, but seriously after more than 40 years of SW aquariums and 20 years reef-keeping I have never seen such a thing. It was as though someone came into my house in the middle of the night and super-cleaned and/or replaced my entire sand-bed. Nutrient levels are still elevated, so I know it’s not the other treatments all kicking in at once. Great product. Thanks BRS for highlighting it and bringing it to my attention.
Not to Sure By shawn on 11/23/2019shawn wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI used this not knowing exactly what to expect. It did not remove my bubble algae. It did kill off all my cheato, but that is a byproduct of its use. Maybe it works for others. Exactly what is it supposed to do?
I'm a believer By Chris on 11/23/2019Chris would recommend this product to a friendI had a massive bubble algae outbreak in my new (1 year old) 70 gal build (thousands of the little boogers!) and Vibrant completely wiped it out! I've been in this hobby since the early 80's and I've never seen anything like it. I tried GFO, crabs and manually removing them but nothing worked except this. I have an SPS dominated tank but also have some some Zoas and Hammers and had no adverse effects to any during or after treatment. It did take about 2 months but I followed the directions and there is not one single bubble in my tank today. I intentionally maintain slightly elevated Phosphate and Nitrate levels and am now dosing Vibrant bi-weekly...no algae anywhere in my tank and even the glass is clean....I'm a believer.
Works By Kevin on 11/14/2019Kevin would recommend this product to a friendI was having hair and bubble algae issues for months and tried some other aquarium cleaners that did nothing. Was very hesitant to purchase Vibrant given the price. I read allot of testimonials online - some say it works and some say it doesn't. I pulled the trigger and purchased it. For the first week I dosed the recommended amount twice and nothing was happening. The second week I doubled the first dose and almost instantly my Acans and Favia took a downward turn, however a day later so did the hair algae. I kept up with the double dose and by the 3rd week the hair algae was completely, amazingly, gone. Now on week 5 with double dosing the bubble algae is slowly receding. My Favia is dead but hoping the Acans will recover as they don't seem to have any tissue loss (just have been receded since the second week).
Yeah, it works! But also despite the claims Vibrant wont harm coral, it did in my aquarium. All other soft corals and Euphilia's are fine. Vibrant also slowed the growth of my Cheato but no die off has occurred. It doesn't solve the under lying issue of my over feeding =) and I do not see it as a long term plan for nutrient reduction. But it sure killed the hair and now the bubble algae so I think its a win.
Incredible Results By Dave Sparks on 11/1/2019Dave Sparks would recommend this product to a friendWow. This stuff really works well. Have used a lot of clarifiers through the years. None touch this product. Not only polishes your water to an incredible sheen but cleans your sand bed as well. 5 stars.
Bubble algae destroyer! By David on 10/25/2019David would recommend this product to a friendI use this product to get rid of bubble algae.
Dosing twice weekly it took about 60 days for complete eradication.
Watch your Nitrate/phosphate levels.
I noticed both dropped significantly during use.
I would put chaetomorpha and other macro algae you want to keep in a safe place.
Amazing By Steed on 10/17/2019Steed would recommend this product to a friendThis product is amazing!! I had been dealing with Cyano for about 6 months and could not get rid of it. I tried Water changes, cleaning off the rocks, using Chemi-clean repeatedly and it just didn't do much at all. Then I saw this product on one of the video's and figured I would give it a try. I literally poured the product in and within a few short hours I could see a difference and in just a day my tank was rid of all Cyano and in two days the water was crystal clear! I can't say enough about this product!
Worked Great To Clean Sand Bed By Jarrod on 9/9/2019Jarrod would recommend this product to a friendI bought this directly from UWC before BRS started carrying it. It worked great to clear algae and cyano from my sand bed. I didn't notice anything after the first dose. I started to see a difference after the second dose. By the third and fourth doses the sand bed looked great. I dosed 3ml once per week for a 32 gal SPS system with high light, high flow, and high nutrient input. I did not notice any effect on the sps corals.
Will Vibrant get rid of Bubble Algae? Also will it hurt the Chaeto in my refugium?
Great question! We have heard and seen great results against bubble algae and are currently dosing in the BRS160. Please keep in mind on the nutrient levels for dosing in a system with a refugium as it will compete and is best to start lower and gradually increase the dosage to avoid any issues with the macro algae. If you have any further questions please let us know. Happy Reefing!
