- Establishes Beneficial Bacteria
- Speeds Up Nitrogen Cycling
- Helps Prevent Loss from New Tank Syndrome
Activ Betta Bio-Activ Gravel is a natural aquarium substrate packed with beneficial bacteria to help speed up the cycling of your aquarium. This allows for the addition of fish into a set up sooner than using non-active substrate as the bacteria can begin consuming ammonia right away.
Beneficial bacteria are essential to a healthy aquarium and should be present before adding livestock. We recommend testing your water often while using this product to ensure your cycle has successfully been completed.
Can I use this for a 1 betta fish tank with no live plants? I have a 10 gallon. And just one fella
I forgot that it is already activated so you do NOT rinse it otherwise you will kill most, if not all, of the beneficial bacteria. Pouring it in. Did not cause any clumping and floated completely to the bottom. Gives a good dark coat on my gray sand, and after a week my nitrogen cycle seems to be flawless.
So far the plants and fish enjoy it. My tank is not exactly setup how I want it yet. Meaning the fish can eat the substrate as it is not under the sand yet. All in all a good product.
Great product got my cycle started quickly my Betta is very happy.
Pretty easy to do, just drop it in. I would buy some again. This and a sponge filter and you're good to go.
