reat Brown/Green Aquarium Water - Use Re-Fresh to Preserve Clean Water in Your Tank
No one wants an aquarium covered in green or brown grunge that smells. But many people do not want to add toxic chemicals to their aquarium either.
The answer is DrTim’s Aquatics Re-Fresh. This 100% natural product is a potent mixture of beneficial bacteria that work to eliminate green and brown grunge in your water and on surfaces in the aquarium.
Is your tank overrun with Cyanobacteria?
Are the decorations covered with green algae?
The traditional way to treat cyanobacteria and algae is with antibiotics and algaecides, respectively. But these only go after the symptoms of the problems and do nothing about the source of the problems. Plus, they create their own problems. The traditional antibiotics used to fight cyanobacteria also kill the beneficial nitrifying bacteria and symbiotic coral bacteria. Algaecides can also kill beneficial microorganisms that are needed to keep the aquarium in balance.
Tank With Cyanobacteria
Use DrTim’s Aquatics Waste-Away as a 100% natural way to get rid of the underlying cause of out of control growth of aquarium slime, algae and cyanobacteria. These unsightly organisms grow when nutrients and organics are high in your aquarium. The only long-term way to deal with them is to eliminate their food – excess nutrient and organics.
Waste-Away is an innovative, special blend of bacteria isolated from our own freshwater and saltwater aquaria and ponds. These bacteria attack organics, both dissolved and particulate, in the aquarium and in the process consume phosphate and nitrate. As mentioned organics, nitrate and phosphate fuel growth of algae, slime and cyanobacteria so using antibiotics/algaecides will only temporally help. And once they kill their target the dead algae and cyanobacteria decay producing more organics and nutrients to feed more algae and cyanobacteria – continuing the cycle.
How to Get Rid of Algae and Cyanobacteria
The traditional methods of using antibiotics and algaecides have one “benefit” – they work fast. You can usually see results in a day. But this “victory” is short lived and the cyanobacteria or algae come back even stronger than before because, as mentioned earlier, the decaying dead cells become food that spurs the re-growth of the algae and cyanobacteria. The 100% natural alternative method presented here takes a little longer but does not involve any harmful chemicals or antibiotics, just beneficial bacteria that GET TO THE SOURCE of the problem.
Here’s how to proceed:
