Waste-Away Sludge Busting Saltwater Bacteria - Dr.Tim's

Instantly create a biofilter in saltwater aquariums that can eliminate new tank syndrome and remove toxic ammonia and nitrite without any sulfurs or odors.

Perfect for fishless cycling new aquariums, especially if used with Dr.Tim's Ammonium Chloride.

Use when

  • Use when setting up a new tank
  • After a water change
  • Cleaning your filter
  • when adding new fish
  • After a disease, treatment to control ammonia and nitrite.

The key to setting up a successful saltwater aquarium is to quickly convert the fish waste into a non-toxic form before it builds up to toxic levels. This process is done by nitrifying bacteria. Under normal conditions, it can take 30 to 45 days for these bacteria to become naturally established in a newly set-up aquarium. Unfortunately, during this time period, ammonia and nitrite can increase to levels toxic to fish - a common problem called New Tank Syndrome. This nitrifying bacteria are the result of the latest scientific research and are used by public aquariums and professionals around the world to control ammonia and nitrite.

If you're not ready to use your tisbe or apo copepods once you receive them you can store them by removing the cap and storing them at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

For Rotifers, and Tig pods remove the cap and store them in the fridge until ready.

Tisbe copepods reproduce extremely well in a reef tank. Keep in mind that the ability to establish a population depends on reproduction exceeding predation. Therefore if you have a lot of predation based on your reef tank stock, it's important to introduce an adequate amount.

The best time to introduce copepods is once the tank inhabitants are not very active. This would be once the lights are off after they have been fed heavily. They can be introduce into the display, back chamber of an all in one, or in a refugium.

No problem, just here over here and reach out to us and we'll get back to you with the best approach to keeping your reef thriving.

Make sure to give us enough information about your tank.
