Nitrifying bacteria can take weeks to naturally establish colonies in new aquariums while ammonia and nitrite can reach lethal levels in only a few days. FritzZyme® 9 provides the proper balance of bacteria proven to rapidly seed biofilters, greatly reducing the natural cycle time allowing for the safe, immediate addition of livestock.
Fritz Industries was the first company to pioneer commercial-scale cultivation of nitrifying bacteria and has remained one of only a few in the world with continuous production for over 30 years. FritzZyme® 9 may be added to new tanks or established systems any time the biofilter needs fortification including: after water changes, aggressive cleaning, adding new livestock, medicating or changing filter media. FritzZyme® 9 contains live saltwater-specific species of nitrifying bacteria. Treats: For a new system, dose 4 oz (119 ml / ½ cup) per 5 US gallons (19 L). For a large livestock system, new system dosage may be safely increased up to 10x. For established systems, use 2 oz (60 ml / ¼ cup) per 5 US gallons (19 L).
