Tetra Safe Start helps to speed up the cycling process of a new aquarium.
When an aquarium is first setup it doesn't contain any of the beneficial bacteria that is required to convert toxic Ammonia into Nitrite and finally into Nitrate which must be removed via water changes.
Tetra Safe Start contains this important bacteria, which when added to your aquarium will attach itself to surfaces and rapidly multiply until enough is present to handle all of the waste that your aquarium produces.
It is possible to cycle an aquarium without adding bacteria but the process takes far longer.
You can add this product to help stabilise your aquarium any time that you add new fish or make major changes to your aquarium such as replacing your filter or substrate.
