Product Description

API Quick Start is an all-natural method to convert toxic ammonia into nitrites, then nitrates in freshwater or saltwater aquariums. Quick Start contains nitrifying bacteria to prevent new tank syndrome which also instantly starts the natural aquarium cycle to allow for instant addition of fish. Before use, shake well and use the API Dosing Cap on the bottle for straightforward measuring. Add 10 ml per 10 gal of aquarium water, and double dose in saltwater aquariums (1 oz treats 30 gallons). Store in a cool dry place; no refrigeration is required.

Avoid unnecessary fish loss by using Quick Start when:
  • Ammonia or nitrite are detected
  • Starting a new aquarium
  • Adding new fish
  • Performing a water change
  • Changing filter media
  • After medicating
