- 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.
Great product using for scud culture
It's very fine, a really good middle option between sand and gravel. It didn't seem to have any sharp edges, or many if any. I likely would prefer it even more if it came in bigger bags, but for what it is the product itself is really nice.
I found this to be a great assistance in cycling my small aquariums.
This is a great jet black substrate. It’s already wet and has beneficial bacteria to kickstart your nitrogen cycle. Just remember it’s only a pound, so it isn’t much. It’s like pea gravel sized.
