FritzZyme TurboStart 700 is a refrigerated product that contains concentrated numbers of live nitrifying bacteria. Freshwater shrimp are extremely susceptible to ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite. TurboStart is a game changer for any hobbyist looking, as the bacteria inside TurboStart will cycle a tank within 5 days or less.
Reasons to Use:
First time using this product, prior to now I have used the Fluval Bio enhancer and that too works great but the Fritz product is just on a different level. This honestly cycled the tank in 24hrs. Granted I am running just plants with a low power light but I do fertilize and when I tested my water a few days after adding the turbo start 700 I already had Nitrates with zero ammonia or Nitrites. I was shocked. Not only that but my water clarity improved tremendously, there was a noticeable difference just a few hours after adding. Any way I will be adding in some sub-adult plecos soon and I will add some additional turbo start when I do, just to help. I highly recommend this product. Pro-tip, only get what you need as the product has a 3-month shelf life and it does have to be refrigerated.
I was very hesitant to purchase Fritzyme Turbo 700 because of the cost, my concerns about viability during shipping (survival of bacterial colonies), and from reading hundreds of reviews over the years on OTHER bacteria-in-a-bottle products that ended up being total wastes and not effective at all. I'm pleased to report that after introduction of about a 2-3x concentrated dose to my tank (the full 4oz bottle in my 125 gallon) for 2 full weeks now the ammonia has been near 0, and this is a heavily stocked tank WITH 3 species of goldfish and a literally brand new tank and Fluval FX6 filter. I'm impressed not simply with the product, but with Flip's communication after I wrote an email in asking about the delay on shipping. Luckily for me the product didn't need a cold pack to be included since it's fall, and I'm only ~2 hours from their warehouse, so it all worked out.
I’ve used this product twice to start my tank cycle immediately, both times I used two small tetras with the turbo start and they always seemed happy and healthy, I waited a week to add the shrimp I was buying (just to be safe) but have never experienced an issue with this product
Very pleased with the swift delivery and outstanding packaging. It is a product that can spoil, the guys a Flip's provided great insulated packaging.
