Fritz Industries was the first to successfully produce nitrifying fresh and saltwater nitrifying bacteria in the mid 1970’s . Presently Fritz Industries is the leader in the research and development of nitrifying bacteria and continues to improve on the commercial production, packaging and distribution of these remarkable organisms.For the benefit of our friends and customers, we present the following information derived from more than two decades of experience working with nitrifying bacteria.
As I prepared myself and my equipment for the unenviable job of saving the fish and resolving a terrible ammonia and nitrite nightmare in two 500 gallon plus saltwater aquariums, for my most important client to date, I decided to speak with one last person – my friend Shirley, the owner of a store called The Aquarium, in Culver City. I will always be thankful that I made this last stop, because Shirley was the only one who mentioned Turbo Start. When she explained that the product contains actual living bacteria and is shipped over night, I stopped in my tracks and asked her to order the product immediately. I am not a scientist, but I do know enough to realize that this product made sense and was well worth a try.
My new plan was to change 25% of the water, add the Turbo Start and then test the water the following day to see if it was working. If the ammonia and nitrite were still rising or had not dropped, I would resort to my original plan and remove the fish. Well, you can imagine how happy and somewhat amazed I was when I tested the water after only 30 hours and found virtually no ammonia, only a trace of nitrite and fish that actually looked as though they has never been in jeopardy.
I cannot thank you enough for producing a product which would clearly exceed the expectations of virtually anyone in this business. I only wish that the four people I consulted with, including people with over 30 years experience, had known about the product. I went through a lot of stress searching for a solution and can hardly believe that so few people in California do not know about such a valuable lifesaving product. I only hope that the rest of the nation is better informed.
Thank you again!
