Kick start your filter with the most concentrated nitrifying bacteria on the market. FritzZyme TurboStart is packaged, live bacteria. All it needs is to warm up in your tank and it gets to work.
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.
TurboStart provides the proper balance of bacteria proven to rapidly seed biofilters, greatly reducing the natural cycle time allowing for safe, immediate addition of livestock. Depending on livestock loads, TurboStart can completely cycle aquariums in as little as 24 hours.
FritzZyme® TurboStart® 700 contains the same proven freshwater strains of effective, live nitrifying bacteria as FritzZyme® 7 but at 15 times the concentration. TurboStart® 700 reduces fish loss due to toxic levels of ammonia and nitrite. Establishing colonies of nitrifying bacteria without FritzZyme® can take weeks; FritzZyme® TurboStart® completely cycles aquariums in five days or less, allowing for safe, immediate addition of livestock. TurboStart® 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.
