Microbiology is the key to success for aquarium keepers: lush, well-growing plants and a tank free from visible algae. Bacterial supplements can significantly reduce the time your new tank needs to cycle. Noxious substances are metabolised into useful nutrients faster and more efficiently, and the biological microsystem in your tank will stabilise more readily.
A healthy microflora improves the growth of your aquatic plants significantly, and algae have a harder time to settle in your tank. All in all, supplements containing bacteria have the potential to influence your tank in a very positive way.
