Protect saltwater aquariums against ammonia buildup for safer and faster cycling times. Tropical Science Biolabs Nitromax Marine is like biological filtration in a bottle! Maximum-density blend contains over 20 billion Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria to rapidly reduce ammonia and nitrite levels. Innovative two-part solution features high density nitrifying bacteria and an oxygenating bacteria booster to dramatically increase efficient biological filtration. Patent pending formulation keeps live nitrifying bacteria 100% viable for an additional 9 months after opening when kept refrigerated. 16 oz treats 425 gallons.

Directions for Use
Always shake container before use; always keep refrigerated after opening. For new aquarium setups, add one teaspoon (5 ml) of Nitromax Marine High-Density Nitrifying Bacteria and the same amount of Oxygenating Booster per 10-gallons of water every other day until ammonia level becomes acceptable. For established aquariums, use the same dosage when adding new fish or when performing partial water changes.
Nitromax Marine gives you a head start in the race against ammonia and nitrite build up. A well-established aquarium takes substantial time and care to develop, and many fish could be lost in the process. Nitromax Marine takes the guesswork out of cycling an aquarium by supplying billions of beneficial live Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria that quickly begin to process toxic ammonia into less harmful nitrates.
Nitrifying bacteria need tremendous amounts of oxygen to properly colonize a biological filter, and mechanical aeration may not be sufficient. Nitromax Marine contains a revolutionary oxygenating bacteria booster that dramatically increases the amount of oxygen, as well as the ability of aquarium water to hold more oxygen.
The research scientists that developed Nitromax Marine have discovered a process to keep the delicate nitrifying bacteria alive - 50% longer than ever before. This patent pending process gives the product more longer-lasting nitrifying bacteria.
