How the Zym Bac – Nitrifying Bacteria Works:
Using Zym Bac will speed up nitrifying bacteria cycle process in a new aquaponic system, aquarium or pond. Nitrifying bacteria are essential for efficient biological filtration. They convert ammonia and nitrite which are dangerous to fish into nitrate which is safe for the fish and fantastic natural fertilizer for the plants. In addition to startup, Zym Bac can also help replace bacteria lost due to water changes, cold or hot weather, after cleaning filter media and will help to boost existing bacteria count. The bacteria provided in Freshwater Zym Bac are particularly effective, hardy, and beneficial over the long term and are only suitable for use in freshwater. Safe for fish & invertebrates. Zym Bac does not affect water pH. Establishes biological filtration quickly and helps prevent “New Tank Syndrome”
Contains only naturally occurring specially cultured beneficial nitrifying bacteria.
