"Regular use of Hydrospace™ PNS ProBio™ reduces the amount of time and money spent on water changes, gravel vacuuming, changing chemical filter media, etc. It is especially useful in the planted refugium where it may take up water-yellowing algal exudates on the spot. What's more, these naturally occurring and highly beneficial microbes contribute to a balanced nitrogen cycle. First of all, they efficiently sequester excess ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. On the other hand, where sources of inorganic nitrogen have been depleted, they are capable of performing nitrogen fixation. This is quite significant, as recent research has revealed that PNSB (and Rhodopseudomonas palustris in particular) form important mutualistic associations with stony corals, providing both the coral animal and its zooxanthellae with a continuous, on-site source of nutrients. Stony and soft corals alike have been shown to directly consume PNSB, which are rich in protein, vitamins and color-enhancing carotenoids. "
