It’s Smart To Be Proactive!

How Do I Maintain A Healthy Environment?
It is important to test your aquarium water weekly to verify good quality in addition to a bi-weekly partial water change of no more than 25% to help reduce toxic buildup, remove debris the filter missed, and replenish the oxygen available to fish.

- Test water quality weekly
- Change 25% water every 2 weeks
- Restore your ecosystem monthly
Feed Your Fish Daily
Feed your fish twice daily with API Fish Food which contains nutritionally enhanced proteins, allowing for easy uptake of nutrients and maximum absorption, resulting in less excrement for clear, clean water.

Do not use to fully stock within the week *Product only for insta stock if your adding a tiny % of your fully stock amount e.g. 1 or 2 low bioload fish.
I Really messed up my fish-less cycle for the first 2 weeks (First 2 weeks had relative help -they got a bit confused- Week one added 4ppm everyday ;P lead to Ammonia overdose way off the charts - Week 2 got under control but relative got confused and didn't add any ammonia)
By the end of week 2 even with all the messiness bacterial colony for cycling ammonia to 0ppm had developed.
End of week 3 nitrates were also 0ppm so i'm really happy that it cycled in under a month.
*Really did add the full recommended amount to my tank nearly every other day ;P
**My temp was at 26C and pH was 8.2 so probably helped cycle quicker
***Saw some comments about refrigerating bottles for it to work - I did not refrigerate the bottle and still worked (kept at room temp ~20C)
**** Probably does contain all bacteria you need, by end of first week when the ammonia was probably about 16ppm ;P I had nitrites around 5ppm and nitrates at around 60ppm
