Pumps and filtration systems do a fair job of cleaning the water in your fish tanks; however, this process takes time. If you are in a hurry, or say, you forgot to buy replacement cartridges for your filter, you need something that will keep your aquarium water clean and clear. You can use Kordon Tidy Tank Fresh Water Additive Pet Store
and see immediate results. This product utilizes the capability of microorganisms to breakdown organic pollutants in the water, which may cause unsightly discoloration and appalling odor.
The bacteria are from the bacillus species, which are good bacteria consuming carbohydrates, proteins and fats. They also degrade debris that are filtered off and accumulated in the filter cartridges. This is beneficial to your tank because removal of such debris will prevent growth of anaerobic organisms (non-breathers of oxygen), which are usually harmful. The bacteria are in its spore form kept in sludge so it is very stable, meaning longer shelf life. Once they are introduced in the conducive environment of your aquarium, it instantly consumes the sludge and grows to active bacterial cells. They proliferate while consuming organic pollutants in the water and they decrease in number after the food source is used up.
Kordon Tidy Tank Fresh Water Additive is a safe and fast way to remove biological and chemical pollutants in your fish tank

Tidy Tank contains a specifically developed sludge removing bacteria used to remove organic debris from aquarium gravel, filters, tubing, etc. Tidy Tank contains billions (2 billion colony forming units per milliliter) of heterotrophic bacteria. These Bacillus
species bacteria rapidly consume carbohydrates, proteins, starches, fats and cellulose that build up in aquariums as the result of feeding, fish waste, decaying plant matter and other organics. As well as eliminating unsightly sludge from the aquarium, these bacteria will also reduce odors that are produced as a result of organic decay. Tidy Tank eliminates debris accumulation in biofilters, preventing the formation of toxic anaerobic zones within the filter media. Tidy Tank will also decrease channeling inside of filters, allowing faster water flow and increased filter efficiency. The Bacillus
species in Tidy Tank can function in aerobic and anerobic conditions allowing these organisms to function in the best and worst of aquarium conditions. Using Tidy Tank augements the beneficial microbes already present in the aquarium. Tidy Tank is very stable and has a long shelf life.SPECIFICATIONS:
Contains live facultative anaerobic heterotrophic Bacillus
species bacteria in spore form.MODE OF ACTION:
The bacteria in Tidy Tank are in a spore stage inside of the product bottle. When introduced into an aquarium, they are able to recognize that they are in an environment friendly to them, an environment rich in food and able to support their reproduction. The bacteria then emerge from a spore state and quickly begin to consume sludge. Upon consuming all of the food in the aquarium, the bacteria recede to minimal population levels. Because of the rapidity with which they consume all the food material available to them in the aquarium it is not possible to sustain an active population of these bacteria for a long period of time. Biweekly additions of Tidy Tank are recommended to sustain population levels sufficient to prevent sludge buildup.IDEAL CONDITIONS:
The bacteria in Tidy Tank function best the following conditions:
pH range: 5.5-8.4
These bacteria are active between 55-110°F/12.7-43.3°C, optimum range is between 75-85°F (23.9-29.4°C).STABILITY:
Tidy Tank is an extremely stable product and will remain viable for three years if kept from extremes of cold and heat.COMPATABILITIES:
These bacteria are 100% non-toxic, non-pathogenic and feed on decomposing organic matter. Tidy Tank is non-corrosive and requires no special precautions to handle. These bacteria are not a health hazard to humans, fish, pets, plants or wildlife. Tidy Tank may be used with all of Kordon`s water conditioners including AmQuel®, AmQuel Plus® and NovAqua®.
Tidy Tank may be used in conjunction with PhosRid and TransClear to achieve crystal clear water quality.
Tidy Tank can safely be used with organic medications such as Kordon`s Ich Attack and Prevent Ich. Tidy Tank can also be used with ZymBac, but Tidy Tank will not speed up the nitrification process. Tidy Tank is not intended as a substitute for proper aquarium maintenance including water changes.CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Tidy Tank is not a medication and is not intended for use treating fish disease. Tidy Tank is to be used as a sludge removing agent. Tidy Tank should not be used in conjunction with any medications, especially antibiotics. Medic
