Description

Simplify your aquatic water maintenance with EcoBio-Block EcoBio-Stone with Beneficial Aquarium Bacteria. Made from Japanese volcanic rock, these unique, mineral-rich porous stones contain nutrients and beneficial natural bacteria spores that only germinate when organic waste is present in the water. The bacteria help break waste down into safer nitrates to clarify and deodorize aquarium water, and also accelerates the nitrogen cycle. Safe for humans, the bacteria are 100% pure microorganisms found in nature. Calcium and trace minerals are also slowly leeched into the water from the stone to create a healthy environment that requires minimum maintenance.

Key Benefits
  • Helps reduce aquarium maintenance by keeping aquarium water crystal clear and odor free.
  • Unique, mineral-rich porous stones contain natural bacteria spores that help break waste down into safer nitrates and accelerate the nitrogen cycle.
  • Volcanic rock also leeches calcium and trace minerals into the water to create a healthy environment for fish.
  • Works equally well in both fresh and salt water environments; also recommended for reptile and amphibian habitats.
  • Small stone treats 8 to 16 gallons and medium stone treats 15 to 40 gallons; can use multiples as needed to accommodate your tank size.

Instructions

To use, rinse off the stone with chlorine-free water, soak overnight and add to your tank, preferably near an air source. If you have an airstone, place it near the airstone. EcoBio-Stones are sized according to the volume of your tank. Once immersed in water, beneficial bacteria in the stone will start to propagate and disperse into the water approximately every 30 minutes. Depending on the size and condition of your tank, it will normally take from 2 to 4 weeks to see results. However, it can be as short as two days and as long as 3 months (very rare). If medication is necessary to treat sick fish, either remove the fish or the block until treatment is completed. The bacteria in EcoBio-Stones are viable at pH 3 - 11 and at temperatures of 50 degrees F to 149 degrees F. The most effective water temperatures are from 77 degrees F to 140 degrees F.

Extra blocks may be necessary depending on variations in the condition of water, temperature and amount of fish. No need to add liquid or powder bacteria.

    Love it with in two days my tank was clear. It came within four days and the price was good. I will buy this item again and soon for my fifteen gal fish tank. I will tell others about EcoBio-Block because it works. Once again thank you.

    Have one in all my tanks

    My tanks were cloudy when I first set them up and were cloudy for weeks. I thought I would try a EcoBio-Block and the tanks seemed to clear up. Not really sure how they work but they worked for me and I've been using them for about 4 years.

    Not a good idea

    By on

    This volcanic stone will upset the ph and nitrate balance and kill off crustaceans and fish. Don’t bother.

    Very Not Cool

    By on

    I bought this product and followed the instructions to the letter. I had an established healthy tank of freshwater fish. After one night of having the Eco Stone in my tank all my fish were dead. I would not recommend every buying or using this product EVER!!!

    Disappointed

    By on

    This was the first time I have really been disappointed in one of your products. I spent almost 25.00 on this and it did NOTHING to help the clarity or water conditions If fact once I put this in my tank it has gotten worst. I wish there was a money back guarantee on this product since it was soo expensive
