Cyanobacteria represent a real danger in saltwater. Red, orange, purplish and green in colour, they adhere to the substrate and release deadly toxins that gradually and silently kill all the occupants of your aquarium..
Therefore, as soon as they first appear in your aquarium, we advise you to undertake the daphbio® anti-cyanobacteria treatment, which will get rid of your cyanobacteria.
The seawater cyanobacteria represent a real danger, in red, orange, violet, or green color, they stick to the substrate and emit toxins which eventually kill slowly and silently all inhabitants of your aquarium.
Since their first appearance we recommend performing anti cyanobacteria treatment from Daphbio® to let you overcome then cyanobacteria invasion.

Effects of the anti-cyanobacteria kit
The cyanobacteria will start to show signs of weakness from day two: they will detach and change colour (they are dying).
Often, the cyanobacteria will have completely disappeared by the third day. You can then clean the tank and carry out a 3% water change to remove the dead residue.
In the majority of cases, treatment needs to run for 5 or 6 days to completely eliminate the cyanobacteria.
Here too, you can then clean the tank and carry out a 3% water change.
Thanks to our treatment against cyanobacteria, your coral, fish, invertebrates and microfauna will quickly regain their beautiful colours.
We recommend avoiding the use of enriched salt and additives during a cyanobacteria episode.
Daphbio® protection against cyanobacteria
The best protection against cyanobacteria remains the reseeding of the microfauna every three to six months using the reseeding kit, along with regular use of Bactoreef®.
