About FritzZyme® 460 Saltwater Aquarium Cleaner
Naturally Reduce Organics
Powerful probiotic blends of naturally-occurring heterotrophic bacteria specifically chosen for their ability to quickly digest organic sludge common in aquariums. Sludge includes fish waste, leftover food and other decaying organic matter. When left unchecked, sludge can lead to unsightly algae growth. Rather than relying on freshwater bacteria to treat both fresh and saltwater, Fritz Industries has identified the species that naturally occur and perform best for each environment. FritzZyme® 460 contains only species of bacteria native to saltwater. The bacteria in FritzZyme® 460 is safe, non-toxic and non-pathogenic.
