CyanoClean to Rid Reef Aquariums of Cyanobacteria
Korallen-Zucht has come out with an interesting new product that we can’t wait to get our hands on. It will be making it’s way to Aquarium Specialty next week and we will be putting it through it paces as soon as it lands. The Zeovit product is called CyanoClean and you guessed it, cleans / wipes out the dreaded red slime (AKA Cyanobacteria) in the aquarium. Unlike other Cyanobacteria products we have seen on the market for years, CyanoClean eliminates Cyanobacteria though biological means.
Each bottle contains live bacteria but it contains zero antibiotics or cleansing agents that can be harmful to reef aquarium inhabitants. CyanoClean is completely reef aquarium safe and it won’t alter the nutrient composition in any negative way according to Thomas Pohl, the brainchild behind the entire ZEOvit product line.
How CyanoClean Works
CyanoClean’s probiotic bacteria get to work by out-competing and eventually “starving out” cyanobacteria in the marine aquarium. Pre-Orders are now available here and pricing starts out at a reasonable $15.99 for the small size bottle. Only 2 drops per 100 liters (about 26 gallons) is required daily when cyanobacteria is visibly present in the aquarium and 1 time per week as a preventative measure.
CyanoClean was developed as a companion product to Coral Snow and Zeozym that can both have a positive impact in reducing cyanobacteria in the aquarium. For extreem cases of cyano outbreaks it may take up to 8 weeks for CyanoClean to wipe out visable signs of th bacteria.
As with all ZEOvit dosing, we highly recommend reading the dosing documentation and taking things slowly. It is a very stringent dosing program that, if not used properly, could have several harmful side effects. CyanoClean is available in 10ml, 50ml and 100ml sizes and Aquarium Specialty will be stocking the 10ml and 50ml bottles and delievery is expected to arrive in 2 weeks.
