    Live bacteria in an active state!

    The best bacterial starter out there. I use it in combination with Seachem Stability and Seachem Pristine for the variety of bacterias they each provide but for cycling Prodibio Biodigest with its live bacterial delivery system is the way to go!

    No matter the tank size, use one vial every 24 hours until you reach a full cycle. After full cycle is reached use one vial with every water change.

    You can combine it with a double dose of Stability every 24 hours until you reach a full cycle. After full cycle double dose of Stability with every water change. Double dose of Pristine only on the first two days of cycling and then with every weekly water change.

    Happy Cycling To All :)

    Pristine is my jam bro!
  6. NightShadeWell Known MemberMember

    Just got some Pristine myself... I have soft/low Ph water, so I thought it would be good! Great to hear feedback on it as well!! Thanks y'all! :)

    So...could we go as far to say that this is TSS+'s big bad brother? In a good way?
  8. KeeperOfASilentWorldWell Known MemberMember

    Keep in mind that Pristine wouldn't do much for the cycle. It is mostly made of waste managing bacterias. Which are equally necessary bacterias.
  9. tommywantfishyWell Known MemberMember

    Biodigest is what I was referring to.
  10. KeeperOfASilentWorldWell Known MemberMember

    If TSS+ is a very successful commercial product, this is it's laboratory form :) :)

    If you are running the tank reasonably well, why would you add a bacterial starter with every water change? It seems like either an unnecessary expense, serious overstocking or a problem in filtration management.
    Or I guess, if you have awful tapwater that comes in with ammonia, it might make sense. What's the story?

    No story :) Everybody and every fish keeper has their own ways. This is not necessary for a regular fish tank but wouldn't hurt if you dosed. This is just a helpful method for high tech, high maintenance aquascapes. Btw adding bacteria is not related to your stocking levels and this technique wouldn't help one bit for ammonia coming from your tap. Bacterial action in a heavily planted carefully scaped aquascape goes a long way then just your stocking and NH4.

    So is pristine a good product, or it creates hydrogen sulfide, like many of these kind?
  19. NightShadeWell Known MemberMember

    How's it going?
