X Company's product
There are a lot of aquarium products on the market, and while most of them will work perfectly fine together in the aquarium, some will not. We can't 100% guarantee any product that's not our own, but here's a few quick rules:
- Avoid using products that overlap in function. Either one works and so it's the one you should be using, both work and so it's a waste to use them both, or neither work and you should be looking for a third, better product.
- Research the products you use carefully. Most products are compatible or semi-compatible with bacteria supplements like Pristine, but some powerful medications will actually kill off live bacteria.
- When in doubt, wait a day. It takes the bacteria colonies in Pristine™ about 24 hours to settle down and find a solid surface to attach to. If you think that the other product you are using might kill off the Pristine™ bacteria before it has a chance to attach, waiting 24 hours after your dose of Pristine™ to use the other product will prevent this from happening.
It's safe to use Pristine™ alongside any of Seachem®'s products with the slight exception of other bacteria supplements. Using both will not have any ill effect in the tank, but it typically is not necessary.
Here's some Seachem® products that are bacteria supplements
|Stability®||aquavitro seed™||aquavitro remediation™|
As previously mentioned, it is fine to use these products together - they will not interact with each other. In most cases though, there is only minor benefit to using multiple bacteria supplements at the same time.
