I see the answer that it is specifically for fresh water tanks, does Marineland make Bacteria for saltwater tanks?

Do the heterotrophic cleaner bacteria in this product interact with the nitrates converted by the nitrifying bacteria in any way? What do the heterotrophic bacteria do to the chemistry of aquarium waters? Thanks

Asked by: thums
Their job is to consume organic matter that builds in the aquarium, leading to high nitrates level, especially in the gravel, so yes, they can reduce nitrites and nitrates. They do not replace water changes, however, and good maintenance. BREX

I'm curious if BioSpira will be useful (new aquarium startup) after shipping during the HOT Florida summertime - I so want it to work for me! Thanks for your help!

Asked by: specv17
Thank you, Brex - since Amazon has some warranties I want to try the solution and then if it doesn't work at all I will get in touch with the seller. If no joy there, I will post an informative negative review on the site about shipping USPS in the heat of summer (it's hot everywhere this time of year) without some sort of cold packs. I didn't look locally - hermits like to shop online if they can. :) I will keep you all posted of results if you like. Thanks again!
