Questions & Answers

3 Customer Questions

Is this safe for shrimp and snails ?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2021
Aqueon PURE is safe to use with shrimp and snails and cannot be overdosed. PURE is live beneficial bacteria and enzymes and gets used as needed. These bacteria live on the surfaces of the aquarium such as rocks, plants, décor, and filter media.

Is this safe for a beta?
Answer by ChewyAug 26, 2022
This is suitable for tropical freshwater fish such as Betta.

Can this be used to cycle a tank? If so, how long will it take to cycle the tank with this supplement?
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2022
It is recommended to add two PURE per 10 gallons of tank water when starting a new aquarium. Add one PURE per 10 gallons of tank water each week. PURE disappears to the eye when added directly to the aquarium and works most effectively when introduced to a filtered tank system. While it does not dissolve completely, the small PURE left behind will go unnoticed and be removed during water changes.

Works Great!!!

We bought our first pack of these from a local pet store to try them out first and these work wonderfully. I test my current 3g tank parameters every day and can see the difference before we started using them. I definitely recommend! The water even stays clear like it should unless I of course drop a snello in and that will end up changing the color of the water for about a day or two. (I have a Female Veiltail Betta and a Magenta Mystery Snail.)- Photo of my betta in her tank using these.
