ATM’s Colony establishes this biofiltration in days instead of weeks with real, commercial grade nitrifying bacteria. Used by ATM, the #1 aquarium builders in the world, Colony Marine contains real Nitrosococcus and Nitrococcus bacteria, which are specific for the marine environment.

Reviewer: Toni (Lili) Hawks from Yadkinville, NC United States  
I love this product! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is because it was not shipped with in a timely fashion. However Tracy was extremely helpful when I called in for assistance! Love the product and the reps where very helpful. I highly recommend them!
