As trusted by public aquariums around the world such as Sydney and Melbourne, Colony true nitrifying bacteria’s claim to fame is through results. ATM Colony cycles aquariums really, really, really fast. Around here we call it “The Month Buster”.

Aquarium cycling, defined as the process of establishing bio-filtration for natural ammonia and nitrite removal, is essential to a successful aquarium.

ATM’s Colony establishes this bio-filtration in days instead of weeks with real, commercial grade nitrifying bacteria. Used by ATM, the #1 aquarium builders in the world, Colony comes in two different formulas we use to introduce fish immediately on our own custom installations. Colony for Freshwater contains real Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria, which are specific for the freshwater environment. Colony for Marine contains two different real strains specific for marine systems: Nitrococcus and Nitrosococcus. These formulas have proven time and again to be the champions of instant cycling on site at ATM installations.

“True” Nitrifying Bacteria: The Ones You Want

Some products claim to establish bio-filtration by utilizing anaerobic, facultative anaerobic, and heterotrophic bacteria. While some of these bacteria can perfrom a neglegible amount of nitrification under certain conditions as a secondary energy source, they are not to be confused with “true” nitrifying bacteria which utilize ammonia and nitrite as a primary energy source.

Colony has a shelf life of approximately seven months at room temperature and one year in the refrigerator.  Because there is no firm expiration date due to different storage variables and timing, there is a born-on dating stamped on the bottle or on a sticker on the bottom of the bottle.  The first two digits represent the year.  The following digits represent the day of the ear.  Example:  Born-on date “13072″ represents March 13th, 2013.  Due to it’s authentic nature, Colony is a strictly quality controlled product.  We are continuously working with our partners to always bring you the highest quality product.
