To rapidly establish bio-filtration in new aquariums
When adding new livestock
As trusted by public aquariums around the world, including Sea Life Sanctuaries, Colony cycles more tanks than any other world wide.
“Rapid Cycle Specialist. True Nitrifying Bacteria: The Real Thing
Only aerobic autotrophs perform effective bio-filtration of toxic ammonia and nitrite. Having a very slow growth rate, a wait of 6-8 weeks may be required to establish bio-filtration in a new aquarium (aquarium cycling).
Colony effectively speeds up this process by introducing millions of these bacteria all at once.
Patience is a virtue in the aquarium hobby, but not at the expense of an education. Colony also provides the foundation in understanding bio-filtration for the long run so that you’re always in control of it.
NOTE: Turn off or unplug UV sterilizers, protein skimmers, and ozone generators prior to and 4-5 days after each introduction of ATM ColonyTM Freshwater. Keep at room temperature and do not allow product to freeze or excede 43°C (110°F). No water changes until after the fourth day when all bacteria has attached.
No refrigeration required. Keep out of reach of children.”
