Every grain of sand in the ocean is covered with a biofilm. Natures Ocean Bio-Activ Live Aragonite is naturally from the ocean. The bacteria on the sand are in a biofilm, therefore the bacteria are in their natural state, immediately removing toxic waste. Artificially adding bacteria (or cultured bacteria) does not make the same biofilm. It is not as efficient as the biofilm found on sand in the ocean which have been naturally selected through millions of years of evolution. All bacteria on Natures Ocean Bio-Activ Live Aragonite are preserved in their natural live state using a patented process and a patented saltwater enrichment solution QX-23. Natures Ocean Bio-Activ Live Aragonite is guaranteed to contain more than 200 million live bacteria per pound of sand in a natural biofilm, ready to instantly start the cycling process and stabilize your tank. Contains live marine autotrophic bacteria to provide proper inorganic chemical balance. Contains live chemoheterotrophic bacteria. Prevents biofouling. Immediately removes nitrogenous waste (Ammonia, Nitrite and helps remove Nitrate).
