Product Description

Safestart live bacteria.


Start Your Aquarium Off Right:

Tetra SafeStart lets you instantly add fish without waiting the typical amount of time to establish the bio-filter. A patented bacteria blend works quickly to remove dangerous ammonia and nitrate so that you can get started immediately with your new aquarium. SafeStart is ideal to use when adding new fish, after medicating, and for all new aquariums.

Creating a healthy, safe aquarium environment for your fish from the beginning is important, so quickly establishing the correct water levels and helpful bacteria in the aquarium is why Tetra has introduced SafeStart. Its proprietary formula prevents New Tank Syndrome and accelerates the establishment of the bio-filter. So whether you're a beginner or a pro, be sure to use SafeStart when adding new fish to your aquarium.

How it Works:

SafeStart works by introducing all of the beneficial bacteria needed your new aquarium needs to thrive. New filters are sterile and take up to 30 to 40 days for bacteria to naturally form; this makes SafeStart an important first step in any new aquarium. Tetra grows actual aquatic bacteria that are naturally found in aquariums rather than low cost industrial bacteria from terrestrial strains as other products may do.

Proven Results:

SafeStart is scientifically proven to help keep dangerous ammonia and nitrate out of your aquarium. Simply add SafeStart to your new aquarium for immediately healthy aquarium water…it really is that easy!
