Aqua-Crobes is a biological product of natural occurring bacteria and enzymes that reduce the threat to fish caused by pathogenic bacteria. Through years of field and laboratory research, a line of specifically formulated microbes for maintaining water quality, increasing growth rates and ensuring the health of your aquatic animals have been developed.
Aqua-Crobes is a competitive excluder of pathogenic microbial diseases such as Vibrio, Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Streptococcus, Allococcus, Myxobacterium, Columnaris and other gram negative bacteria. The way it works is by creating competition with negative bacteria by introducing bacteria to the water that is beneficial to the fish that live in it. This is a process known as competitive exclusion. Aqua-Crobes competes with these pathogenic bacteria for the nutrients in the water that they depend on for their survival while waiting to attack your fish. At the same time little peptides are produced that are toxic to finfish and shellfish pathogens.
When used as directed, Aqua-Crobes will reduce the bacterial count of the pathogens to such low levels that they will not be a threat to the health of your fish. It is impossible to completely remove all the pathogenic bacteria from the aquarium, but Aqua-Crobes, when used on a regular basis, will keep the pathogens levels so low they will not affect your fish. Aqua-Crobes is not a medication or chemo- therapeutic product and is safe for all your aquatic animals.
Aqua-Crobes does not compete with other bacteria supplements such as BioGro due to the fact that the two products are removing different nutrients from the water. While BioGro removes nutrients which normally feed algae (ammonia, nitrogen, etc), Aqua-Crobes removes the nutrients which e.g. Aeromonas and Vibrio require to survive in your aquarium (fish waste materials). Because they work to remove different nutrients, BioGro and Aqua-Crobes can both be used at the same time. It is also highly effective in many temperatures of water and at different ranges of pH levels. Whether you have fresh, brackish or salt water environments to care for, you are set with Aqua-Crobes!
