Bio-filtration for natural ammonia and nitrite removal, has been a long running issue in the aquatics hobby and industry. Actually, establishing bio-filtration with cultured true nitrifying bacteria is a simpler dynamic than many realize.
Before fish can be introduced into the aquarium, bio-filtration must be established to filter out the toxic ammonia and nitrite created by fish waste. ATM’s Colony establishes this bio-filtration in days instead of weeks with real, commercial grade nitrifying bacteria. Used by ATM, the #1 aquarium builders in the world, Colony comes in two different formulas we use to introduce fish immediately on our own custom installations. Colony for Freshwater contains real Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria, which are specific for the freshwater environment. Colony for Marine contains two different real strains specific for marine systems: Nitrococcus and Nitrosococcus. These formulas have proven time and again to be the champions of instant cycling on site at ATM installations.
Realize that many products will claim to contain true nitrifying bacteria, but they commonly contain heterotroph bacteria, which are not true nitrifying bacteria. With nitrifying bacteria it is important to choose wisely. Unlike other nitrifying bacteria products, ATM’s biological formulas are regularly used in professional industries such as public aquariums, aquaculture operations, waste water, aquaponics, seafood distribution, and much more. As experience comes at a premium in aquatics, our team has been formulating and delivering nitrifying bacteria longer and better than any other in the world.
• Imported true nitrifying bacteria has been a reality in commercial industry as a regular practice for a long time, and now its time for you, the hobbyist, to use the same tools on your home aquarium!
• Real Nitrifying Bacteria Establishes Instant Biofiltration
• Neutralizes Ammonia and Nitrite Spikes Naturally
• Two Different Formulas For Freshwater And Marine Systems

The HydroTote™ is a collapsible jug that holds up to 20 L (5 gallons) in the new size. It's perfect for customers that get their saltwater, RO water, or DI water at their local fish store. When not in use, it easily folds up to take up less space. It pours easily and can withstand a drop of up to 3 meters while full.
Dealers asked for it, and Seachem delivered. HydroTote™ is the ideal space saving alternative for shops carrying current 5 gallon hard jugs that simply consume too much space in the home, office, or pet store.

Safe™ is the complete and concentrated dry conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Safe™ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Safe™ converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. Safe™ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Safe™ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Safe™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Safe™ will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
Use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 1,250 L (300 US gallons) as needed to reduce chlorine and chloramine or use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 300 L (75 US gallons) for ammonia. For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.
May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite and nitrate in an emergency, up to 4 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
