PNS Probio Live purple non-sulfur bacteria (Rhodopseudomonas palustris):
-Selectively consumed by corals.
-This bacterium actively seeks out coral for colonization.
-Lives inside the coral with zooxanthellae.
-Naturally lives in freshwater and saltwater (intended for use in both).
-Produces a hormone for plant growth.
-Breaks down organic waste (both dissolved and particulate), including detritus, mulm, fish food, and fish waste.
-Probiotic for fish gut health.
-Great for establishing bacteria due to "old tank syndrome" reestablishing bacteria after medicating.
-Intended for regular use after aquarium cycling.
-Can be soaked in herbivore fish food to help break down cellulose in fish gut.
-Probiotic for fish gut.
-Not scientifically proven but known to prevent and out-compete bacteria causing RTN in coral.
-Can outcompete algae and cyanobacteria by form of nutrient processing and uptake.
