Are you struggling with finding the most reliable, durable, and trusted brand of fish food, water treatment, or water pumps for your indoor aquarium or outdoor pond? Well, we are here to help! I am sure many of you have heard of the brand called Tetra. Tetra is a company that specializes in different types of fish food, water treatments, water filters, water pumps, and a wide range of other useful items that you may need to keep your fish friends happy, healthy, and safe. Let’s start with Tetra fish food.

Tetra fish food has been reviewed by millions of loyal customers as having great consistency. The most popular brands of Tetra fish food are sticks, vibrance, and variety blends. Tetra sticks are great for providing your fish with a maintenance diet that provides the perfect amount of energy and longevity for them.  The Vibrance brand is similar to sticks, but the composition of this food is great for providing color enhancement to your fish that brings out vibrant colors of your koi’s yellows, reds, and golden colors. Lastly, the variety blend is a carbohydrate-based food that will provide your fish with all the nutrients that they may need to thrive. Next on the list to discuss is Tetra water treatment brands and how they can offer you as an aquarium owner a more convenient way to clean, prepare, and create the perfect environment for your indoor aquarium.

Tetra has a 5 step water treatment system that helps maintain balance and consistency in the long term to your fish and to your aquarium. The 5-step water treatment consists respectively of aqua safe, safe start, test 6 in 1, easy balance, and finally tetra mix. Aqua safe is first used when you have just finished replacing your aquarium water and begin to fill it up again. Aqua safe is great at neutralizing harmful substances in tap water, removing chlorine, and binding heavy metals together so that they can be escorted out of the body as waste. Aqua safe is also notorious for supporting and protecting the mucus layer of fish. The second component of Tetra’s water treatment system is Safe start. Safe start immediately activates the biological filtration. It reduces ammonia and nitrate which can be harmful if consistently left in your aquarium for your fish to swim around in. Safe start should be used after a water change, adding new fish, or after applying medical remedies.

Next, we have the test 6 in 1 which checks important water parameters, carbonate hardness, general hardness, nitrate pH, and chlorine. Test 6 in 1 is used to check if the water is ideal for fish or not. This product should be used once a week to maintain the utmost quality of your aquarium water. Our 4th component is Easy Balance. Easy Balance is a specifically curated product that was created to stabilize the water chemistry and to keep aquarium water fresh. Not only can this product stabilize the pH of water, but it also prevents the increase of phosphate and nitrate while reducing the need for water changes. This product is also amazing at adding valuable vitamins and trace elements. Finally, we have the 5th component called Tetra mix, Tetra mix is a complete food for all ornamental fish that helps keep them living a long and healthy life. This mix helps to improve the bodily functions of fish while increasing their resistance to disease. 

There is also one more water treatment system that Tetra has produced that I think deserves some blog time. Crystal water tetra is an amazing product that works by eliminating clouded areas in aquarium water. This will create a crystal-clear water look within a few hours once applied. Cloudy water can be due in part to dirt particles from dead plant material and food remnants. When the active ingredients take effect, a white cloud will begin to form, but this is harmless and disperses within a few hours. The active ingredients bind to small particles in the water, which are then extracted by the aquarium filter. You can typically see the initial effects after 2 to 3 hours. It should be noted though that this product should be only used in freshwater aquariums

As far as water filters that Tetra Company creates, one of the favorites is the Teatra bond bio-active pressure filter. This filter works by keeping the pond clean and healthy through mechanical and biological filtration. The filter contains an inlet and an outlet and a back flush with turn up to change the direction. The bio-activators have a large surface area and unrestricted water flow for improved cleaning. During the backflush activation, the bio-activators provide unrestricted water flow too. This filter works around the whole surface so that dirt and debris are removed while leaving the beneficial bacteria on the bio-activator surfaces intact and robust. A benefit of the backflow is that the water that comes out is great for watering your plant with all the nutrients from your fish and pond. Lastly, depending on how big your pong is and how much water pressure you need Tetra’s pond bio-active pressure filter comes in three different capacities: 1,500-gallon filter, 2,500-gallon filter, and a 4,000-gallon filter.
