Developed specifically for maintaining a healthy aquatic ecosystem, the EcoBio-Block EcoBio Stone is an effective and beneficial tool in minimizing aquarium maintenance. Easy to use, these EcoBio-Block Stones are made from volcanic rocks and cement and serve as an effective aquarium cloudy water fix. They contain live beneficial bacteria that live and multiply in these stones in addition to nutrients that help to create and promote a healthy ecosystem and aquatic habitat. Serving as a great source of beneficial bacteria for aquarium water, these stones contain bacteria that begin to propagate upon immersion in freshwater or salt water and disperse about every 30 minutes into the aquarium. As the bacteria colonize, they feed on organic waste, breaking down the waste into ammonia and then into nitrates, which eventually break down into nitrogen gas through interaction with anaerobic bacteria in the tank, dissipating into the air. This process clarifies and revitalizes cloudy water, eliminates odors and creates a healthy and safe environment for fish and other aquatic life. In addition, this volcanic rock leeches essential calcium and trace minerals back into the water. This process, which occurs in nature, reduces the need for maintenance and water changes by continually keeping a sufficient number of bacteria in the tank to create a perfect ecosystem. Great for starting new tanks, as it speeds up the nitrogen cycle. Lasts for 1.5 to 2 years.
Rinse EcoBio-Stones with chlorine-free water and soak overnight before placing in your aquarium. 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.

After umpteen trips to various stores for lighting, plants, fish and such, plus equally umpteen deliveries from Amazon for hardware, test kits, etc., this is where I am right now with my new tank.
