Trusted by public aquariums around the world, Colony true nitrifying bacteria is the standard when it comes to establishing bio-filtration instantly. 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 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.

Industrial Strength Nitrifying Bacteria!!! January 22, 2016
Reviewer: Fred Ernani from California, United States  
I've kept aquariums for over 40 years and have watched how the hobby has evolved over time. I had my first marine aquarium when in high school over 30 years ago and was told to use damsel fish to cycle my tank extremely slowly!  I did and it exposed those poor fish to extremely high concentrations of ammonia and nitrite in the process. Since that time I've started multiple aquariums, freshwater, planted tank and now reef tank and have used various bacterial and enzyme additives to accelerate the process. I'm so glad that I found ATM Colony because it performs the best!  It works very fast and makes the cycle happen in a scientifically predictable fashion.  It takes the guesswork and luck out of the equation.  I will not ever start another aquarium up without a fresh bottle of it. Not only does it speed things up and get you up and running faster, but it also makes your tank's inhabitants much safer and happier since they don't have to be exposed to high levels of ammonia or nitrite.
