Description

The API Aquarium Start-Up Pack helps you add fish to your aquarium without stressing them out. Normal aquarium cycling requires at least 24 hours before you can add fish. With this convenient kit, you speed up that process in just two simple steps. First, make the water safe and fish-friendly with Stress Coat. Stress Coat also helps reduce stress and protects fish from irritants with soothing aloe vera. Next, add Quick Start to start the cycling process. Then add your fish. Quick Start limits the amount of toxic ammonia and nitrite in the tank to help prevent fish loss. Ideal for beginners, Stress Coat and Quick Start can be used together during water changes or when adding fish.

Key Benefits
  • Reduces aquarium cycle prep so fish can be added instantly.
  • Works to make tap water safe and reduces fish stress.

Their proven treatments include water conditioners and clarifiers, fish medications, pH adjusters, algaecides and quick-start solutions—all designed to keep your aquarium crystal clear and your fish happy and healthy.

Clearing the Water

Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Superior Nutrition

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water. For your turtle friends, premium floating pellets and stick treats provide multiple vitamins for a stronger, healthier shell.

    Great for small tanks!

    By RRRR on Sep 27, 2019

    I generally prefer more a concentrated water conditioner but it is hard to get the dosage right for small tanks. Thats where API conditioner comes in - super easy to treat just 2 or 3 gallons for a water change.
