HOW IT WORKS The live bacteria contained in API Quick Start immediately starts the aquarium cycle to neutralize toxic ammonia and nitrite which allows the instant addition of fish to your aquarium. Without adding API Quick Start it can take up to 21 days for tap water to rid itself of harmful ammonia and nitrate. This is often called cycling a tank.
But with API Quick Start this cycling process happens instantly so no need to wait 7-21 days to add your fish. How does it work? The live bacteria contained in Quick Start immediately starts the water conditioning process which removes harmful ammonia and nitrite which are the most deadly pollutants to newly added fish.
We still recommend using a water conditioner to remove chlorine and chloramines along with proper pH and temperature to insure the best initial water quality for your fish.
