The Problem: Maintaining a Safe Environment

Ammonia and nitrite pose a continuous threat to aquarium and pond owners, as well as aquaculture fish farmers, due to their high toxicity to fish. In nature, these compounds are transformed into less harmful nitrate through a process called nitrification. This conversion relies on the combined action of two types of bacteria: ammonia-oxidizing bacteria and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria. 

However, a shortage or imbalance of these nitrifying bacteria can lead to harmful conditions for the fish, posing a significant challenge. 

The Solution: Accelerating Biofilter Startup

Drawing from extensive expertise in microbial processes within aquatic biofilters, Avecom has formulated a top-tier living nitrifying culture. This innovative solution facilitates the rapid startup of the nitrification process in biofilters. Formulated as a liquid suspension, it contains a blend of highly effective ammonia and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria. The carefully cultivated mixed consortium demonstrates exceptional resilience and adaptability, making it a suitable choice for a wide range of practical conditions.
