New Life Spectrum Probiotix (Naturox)
Aqua-Crylic is the largest distributor of New Life Spectrum Probiotix in the USA!
So, what is Probiotix®? It’s the Spectrum Nutrition Formula combined with our own mix of beneficial probiotic cultures — at least 3 million per gram (which to our knowledge is the most of any aquarium food product). These add to the beneficial organisms that live in your fish’s gut and help aid digestion — more of the nutrients your fish eat are absorbed and converted (this is called utilization ratio). This means that with the same formula, Probiotix® is actually more nutritious because your aquarium companions get more out of each pellet! Plus, the nutrient formula is based on our most concentrated formulation: NLS Thera+A.
This boosted effectiveness also means there’s not as much waste byproduct going into your aquarium water. And our proprietary probiotic mix has an extra benefit: we added phosphate-eating bacteria that works in the gut, but also gets into the water column along with the waste — and from there into the filter media. The result? A virtuous cycle in the aquarium that works in the gut, the water and the biofilter.
Probiotix® is manufactured using what we are calling our Cold Re-Extrusion Tech. This gives us high probiotic density (that is biologically effective) locked within the pellet so it doesn’t wash-off in the water and activates in the hot, moist conditions of the fish’s gut as the pellet is broken down.
In brief, Cold Re-Extrusion means we heat-extrude the pellet to pasteurize it, re-grind it, add the probiotics and then re-form the pellet using a cold process made possible by our new, low-starch binding formula — and some clever re-engineering of our machines that keep the dough cool as it’s compressed into the final pellet.
Probiotix® guarantees at least 3 million viable cultures per gram — more than enough to work in your aquarium companions’ gut and help support the biological cycle in your tank.
New Life Spectrum Probiotix® comes in pellet sizes from small to large for a variety of fish types, both freshwater and marine.
