Feature Product: STRESS ZYME™

When you hear the word “bacteria,” your first reaction or impression might be a negative one. After all, bacteria is typically associated with dirt, sickness, or other poor conditions. When it comes to your aquarium, however, it’s necessary to break out of that mindset, as bacteria actually plays a crucial role in cleaning your tank and keeping your underwater world healthy and thriving.

API® STRESS ZYME® contains 300 million live bacteria per teaspoonful to consume sludge and break down organic waste to effectively clean your aquarium. STRESS ZYME also works to optimize the efficiency of the biological filter (or natural aquarium cycle, which plays an essential role in filtering out harmful chemicals). Using this product regularly, particularly when cleaning your aquarium or performing a partial water change, assists in keeping harmful chemicals at bay by working to increase the effectiveness of the natural aquarium cycle.

You should note that API® STRESS ZYME will NOT cycle your biological filter the way the nitrifying bacteria in API QUICK START will. These are two different products containing two different kinds of bacteria, intended to be used for separate purposes. STRESS ZYME will consume sludge, while QUICK START will quickly establish the biological filter in your tank. These two products should not be used interchangeably!

Perfect for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums, regular use of API® STRESS ZYME will lead to a cleaner aquarium, an active biological filter, and healthier fish over time. Happy fish keeping!
