    Aqueon PURE Live Bacteria and Enzymes!

    Want a solution that brings balance to your tank's water along with the convenience of dosing easily while breaking down excess waste?  aqueon-pure-live-beneficial-bacteria-with-enzymes-30-gallonAqueon's PURE live nitrifying bacteria with enzymes may be for you!  These easy-to-dose gel balls contain live beneficial bacteria and enzymes that help maintain clean water.  It's great for starting a new aquarium, too!

    Tending to live on aquarium surfaces, such as filter media, decor, and gravel, nitrifying bacteria convert hurtful ammonia and nitrite into nitrate to help balance your aquarium. aqueon-pure-live-beneficial-bacteria-with-enzymes-10-gallon-12-pack-dosing With one dose weekly, per the instructions and tank size, the beneficial bacteria and enzymes break down excess waste from potential over feeding or detritus in the tank.  This can also help your filter and reduce its maintenance! 

    The PURE spheres are designed to provide a surface on which the bacteria and enzymes can thrive and slowly be released.  It is on the surface that they will reside until the right conditions are met where they can be best utilized and used most efficiently.  PURE is "time released" and could not be overdosed as any additional bacteria will wait until the time is right to be released.  These clear spheres will disappear to the naked eye when placed into the aquarium, and will work best with a filtered tank system.  

    aqueon-pure-live-beneficial-bacteria-with-enzymes-10-gallon-24-pack-wth-ballsWhile the sphere will not dissolve completely, what remains will be too minute to notice and will be easily removed during the next water change.  Even though this will not replace the water change method, it does provide safety in knowing that your aquarium is prepared for any imbalance! 

    Right now until September 16th, you can try out this new aquatic solution - Aqueon PURE Live Beneficial Bacteria and Enzymes - at 10% OFF at Uncle Bill's Pet Centers!

  • HY511 Candy Cane Tetras!

    HY511 Candy Cane Tetras!

    A.k.a. the "Ornate" or "False Rosy" Tetra, this is a somewhat newly discovered species.  The HY511 Candy Cane Tetra is native to Peru and the Amazon and has gorgeous coloration with striped fins.  They are also quickly growing in popularity with fish enthusiasts!  Most are translucent with light pink or maroon in color with white and red stripes on their fins.  
    This peaceful species make an elegant addition to any aquarium, and can create beautiful displays in a planted tank.  They are best kept in groups of at least 6 since they are schooling fish.  Due to being kept in such numbers and to how they like to swim about the upper-middle levels of the water - sometimes also exploring the bottom levels - they will be most successful in an aquarium of 20 gallons or more.  These Tetras enjoy and best thrive in dense vegetation, dim lighting, slower (or redirected) water currents, and plenty of places to hide or explore such as rocks, driftwood, and floating plants.

    HY511 Candy Cane Tetras will appreciate having very clean water, too, so regular bi-weekly 30-50% water changes may be necessary.  This species are fantastic community fish that can be kept with other small, amicable tankmates (or even larger, non-aggressive invertebrates).  Good tankmates may include the Diamond Tetra, Bleeding Heart Tetra, Black Phantom Tetra (also on sale for 2 for $5 until August 12th!) or the Kuhli Loach.  Other types of fish that could be housed with these colorful tetras could be Barbs, Rasboras, or even certain Discus species.
