|New Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria by Tetra® Brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. - Pet, Home & Garden Division Helps Simplify Fish Care|
"Our water care products give fishkeepers the tools they need to maintain healthy water for the betterment of their pets' health," said Division Vice President
Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria, along with Tetra® AquaSafe and Tetra® EasyBalance, form Tetra® Brand's Essential Care Program, a water care regimen that helps aquarium owners condition, clean, and balance their tanks to keep fish healthy and happy for a long time. Fishkeepers can simplify the maintenance of their aquariums by using each of these three water care products monthly.
Representing the "clean" aspect of the Essential Care Program, Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria is an innovative blend of millions of beneficial microorganisms. When added to an aquarium, the live bacteria serve two functions: to break down sludge and debris, and boost filter performance to remove toxins like ammonia and nitrite. Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria can decrease the need for tank maintenance by reducing waste buildup on gravel by up to 25%, replenishing the bacterial balance of an aquarium.*
Formula varieties include Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria for all tropical fish (available in 4 oz. and 8 oz. pouches) and Tetra® Goldfish Cleaning Bacteria for goldfish (available in 4 oz. pouches).
"Backed by the rest of the Essential Care Program, Tetra® Cleaning Bacteria helps fishkeepers to keep their environments healthier and cleaner than ever before — and enjoy a successful hobby," said Fox.
