All-natural beneficial bacteria rich in nitrifiers.Prevent fish loss by controlling ammonia and nitrite.Rapidly mature new aquariums.Help maintain biological balance.The difference between enzymes and bacteria.Enzymes: Organic substances that accelerate a biochemical reaction, commonly called a catalyst. Enzymes can perform a specific job time and time again. However, once added to the aquarium, enzymes useful for nitrification rapidly become unstable and non-functional.Bacteria: One-cell micro-organisms that produce many types of enzymes. Cycle provides factories for these enzymes. The enzymes produced by the bacterial cells thrive in this environment and therefore can do their work as a catalyst correctly. Cycle creates ongoing biological activity that continuously controls levels of ammonia, nitrite, and solid waste.Why does Cycle use a team approach?Extensive research reveals an important interrelationship between bacteria that remove nitrogenous toxins (ammonia and nitrite) and heterotrophic strains that solubizable waste. Heterotrophs convert organic carbon (solid waste) into food for the other micro-organisms, such as lithotrophs, which metabolizable ammonia and nitrite and nitrate. Without this carefully regulated team of strains, the biological capacity to eliminate ammonia and nitrite is impaired.What makes Cycle unique?Concentrated.Cycle is the most highly concentrated preparation of living bacteria in a dormant state.Unique Processing TechnologyThe unique fabrication process of Cycle ensures that the bacteria contained in the bottle are dormant. These micro-flocs, made up of thousands of cells, wait until conditions are favorable to develop. Each dose provides the aquarium with an incredible concentration of live micro-organisms that reproduce rapidly. Many other products are already active when packaged, requiring nutrients and oxygen to survive. Often, they have already started their life cycle in the bottle before being added to an aquarium.Extended Shelf LifeCycle's bacteria are in a stable, dormant state. A minimum shelf-life of three years is guaranteed.Optimum Biological ApproachCycle is composed of a controlled group of bacteria that have been studied and analyzed over time to produce a product with the highest ability to transform toxins. The reduction of ammonia and nitrite is dramatic. Laboratory tests demonstrate that a simple dose of Cycle permits the elimination of high levels of ammonia and nitrite in water.Nitrite ReductionCycle is biased toward nitrite-oxidizing bacteria of the class proteobacteria. As Cycle has evolved over the last years, the ratio of nitrite-oxidizing bacteria in the bottle has been optimized. The result

Provides some beneficial bacteria

I like Seachem Stability better because it has bacteria to break down nitrates, too.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Not as good at Seachem Stability

Good stuff

posted 6 years ago

I really liked this stuff -- added it to every water change, big help when adding fish. But for months now I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Don't tell me they stopped making it!!

Pros: keeps your tank healthy

Cons: can't find it
