Pros and Cons

Pros3

This is great for fast started aquariums and when you want to redo your bacteria bed with a kick of the right bacteria. Now we have clearer water and a more energetic betta plus a bottom of the tank that is more natural and eye pleasing.

These beads are a bit pricy, but to me they are so worth it. It’s beyond entertaining to watch my little fishy buddy play in the soft beads. The blue orbs look very pretty.

If you have a very active or bored betta, his life is about to change! Nice belt. They look good too! But for now, i’m just happy they seem to brighten his mood for now.

Cons1

As these shrink, bettas ingest them and it can kill them quickly. Within a couple of days the bubbles shrunk into a tiny bead like form.

Pros2

Found a leak in the old canister filter. Tested the water two days later and there was no ammonia and no nitrite. I use a 330 gallon ibc tote for my water changes.

The complaints about this product seem to be because users expect their aquarium to cycle in a week. Definitely recommend to accelerate the process. Only complaint is that it takes longer than expected.

Cons2

Oz bottle is way to expensive. I have no idea if it’s effective. It says so on the back in fine print!

If your nitrifying bacteria aren't in a bottle/pouch that needs to be refrigerated, they're probably just worthless dead bacteria. I switched to a different product that i know has live bacteria in it as it smells something awful.
