"I thought I'd give you some news of my three tanks, which were successfully treated with AquaBella. Clear water, good chemistry, little if any algae. It's been three years and everything is perfect. Too perfect as a matter of fact, I am bored!
Thank you, you've been of a great help turning around my failed come back at fish keeping. I don't trust these forum "experts" any longer. I understand why people are so confused."

“I have purchased AquaBella for saltwater and started treating my tanks on January 4. I have 6 saltwater tanks: fish only (110 gal. + 20-gal. refugium), reef (65 gal. + 20-gal. refugium), seahorse/pipefish (55 gal.), pipefish (40 gal.), and dwarf seahorses (15 gal. + 10-gal. refugium).
At that time, my seahorses were suffering from vibrio (flesh-eating disease) that caused ulcers on their tails, and no matter what antibiotics I used I could not improve their condition a slightest bit. They were dying one by one.
I finished treatment by January 8 and then left for a meeting for four days. The first thing I noticed when I came back was that all the ulcers on the remaining seahorses were gone, and seahorses started eating. Secondly, my corals in both the reef and seahorse tanks looked as good as they never looked before — they were fluffy and happy, and colors improved substantially. The water was crystal-clear, and my nitrates levels were about 5 ppm, which I never had before in my marine aquarium life — I could never make nitrates go below 15 ppm.
So, overall AquaBella’s effects were quite dramatic, plus it also had an unexpected bonus in that it treated vibrio in seahorses. I really appreciate your great work, and I will be buying your products for my marine and freshwater tanks in the future. Thank you so much!”

“Both are doing really well. The tank I tested first has two angels in it and they are so happy they’re trying to breed. My other tank has a healthy group of clown loaches and they can be really finicky. So all is well. Your product really changes the amount of work needed to keep a tank. I used to warn friends of the commitment before setting one up for themselves. Now I encourage them and direct them to your product.”

“A year and a half ago my wife brought one of your 12-gallon wall-mount fish tanks home. To say I was leery of its claims would be a total understatement. I’ve been an aquarium hobbyist for the past 20 years, and everything I thought I knew of aquariums told me that there was no way I’d be able to achieve a healthy 12-gallon salt water tank, especially with the simple equipment that came included with the tank.
The additional claim that water changes were unnecessary for a full year was, I thought, laughable! Impossible! My wife had just been suckered.
Not wanting to hurt my wife’s feelings (the tank was a birthday gift to me), I stuffed my thoughts, mounted my tank and headed to the fish store for live rock, live sand and RO Salt Water. The knowledgeable store staff rolled their eyes when I explained my aquarium set-up, sold me the rock, sand and water, and wished me luck.
Boy was I in TROUBLE… or was I?
Now, 16 months after setting up the tank, the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphate levels remain stable, healthy and pretty much unchanged. I have not done a single water change in that time — AND, I haven’t lost any fish due to water quality.
How your aquarium and enzyme works, I have no idea. What I do know is that it worked and the tank doesn’t require any more maintenance than you claimed it would. Typically when something sounds too good to be true, it isn’t true. Obviously this product is the exception.“
- Jeff McClung, experienced breeder of African Cichlids
“I have recently tried AquaBella in my aquariums and was amazed by how well it worked. My nitrate levels dropped without performing a water change and the clarity of the water was much clearer after only 4 days of introducing AquaBella. The water smells and looks cleaner, I have been breeding fish for several years and in all of my years of experience I have never come across the super nitrate eating bacteria that AquaBella provides. The fact that it is organic and safe for my fish is really a big reason I tried it and now love using it.”
- Robin Brown, 4 Tanks and 1 Koi pond
“I believe in this product and think that it has worked wonders on all of my tanks/pond
I have 3 fresh tanks
1 salt tank 28 gallons
1 outdoor pond 2500 gallons
I use your AquaBella on all of my tanks/pond and love the results I’ve noticed that it really helps the algae build up The water has been very polished and clear. The water readings come back within a good range much more frequent than without use of the product. I use it on start up tanks and hospital tanks as well – I feel it offers beneficial bacteria for these specific situations. My pond has been just perfect, I barely need to do anything to it and I believe it is due to a great extent to the use of AquaBella
- Anthony D, Koi pond
"I’ve been raising my koi fishes for about five years now. After using AquaBella Bio-Enzyme for two years, I can see that the product helps my koi fish grow bigger within a shorter period of time compared to the first three years of raising my koi fish.
From my experience, I truly believe that this product greatly reduces organic matters in the pond, making it cleaner for the koi fish to live in. Using this product also saves me more money since I don’t have to use expensive algae-control products and antibiotics as much as before. I would recommend this product to all koi fish lovers because it has made raising koi fish more enjoyable now than before.“

Pete currently serves as Technical Director of Ocean Rider, the most successful seahorse-breeding program in the world. “I am a strong believer in AquaBella Bio-Enzyme. I think it’s a very useful product for marine aquarists. In my opinion, one of the most important steps that the home hobbyist can take when preparing a new saltwater aquarium is to cycle the tank using AquaBella, and one of the most important steps they can take when maintaining their aquarium thereafter is to include AquaBella to help maintain optimum water quality.”

“I used the salt formula on my reef and the results are excellent. Water clarity couldn’t be better. I haven’t changed water for a long time (4 months) and two weeks after the 5 treatments my water is crystal-clear with no yellow water or algae and all my corals are wide open.”
-Peter Vincent, Owner/Service Manager, Aquarium Perfection, Aquarium Maintenance
“You truly have an amazing product. I was a strong skeptic when I first heard about the product, especially given the claim of no water changes for one year (because of past experience using similar solutions).
But now that I have had a chance to use it over a period of 6 weeks, the evidence of its effectiveness is undeniable. The clarity of the water is astonishing. It works well in both freshwater and saltwater fish only systems, and appears to be very positive in heavily stocked reef aquariums. The fish are calmer and stronger and it clearly is having a positive affect on the corals as they appear fuller and happier for lack of a better term.
In my opinion, your product should be considered an industry breakthrough and something that every aquarium owner should have on hand.“
Pet Extreme, Pets Store
“We began testing AquaBella Bio-Enzyme on selected freshwater and saltwater aquariums seven months ago, and during this period we carefully monitored water quality in the tanks to which the product was applied.
To our delight, water changes have not been required! We are now using AquaBella in our commercial system and other display tanks, and the water maintains crystal clarity! With rigorous and frequent testing, we have seen no ammonia or nitrate spikes. Our aquatics department recently added AquaBella to a live rock tank. The product seems to eat up the extra ammonia that is present in the tank, in turn decreasing the length of time required for curing.
AquaBella’s Bio-Enzyme water treatment system has been a benefit to Pet Extreme and would be a benefit for new or existing fresh and saltwater aquarists.”

Patricia Hamilton, President Aqua-Deco
“In our maintenance business we have been applying AquaBella Bio-Enzyme to 15 of our aquariums for the last 4 months. The results are remarkable in the fact we have not had to do any water changes only the normal top off. The water is crystal clear and the sludge on the bottom is virtually gone.
In the past, we needed phosphate removers, water clarity products, algae destroyers, sludge removers, charcoal in the filters and other products to help maintain the water to its proper pH. With the use of AquaBella Bio-Enzyme our carrying case is much lighter, our costs of purchasing products is smaller and our time spent on maintenances is shorter. AquaBella Bio-Enzyme is a great product and we intend to use it always. We are sold on AquaBella Organics!”
Gabriel Quinzanos, Prime Discus, breeder and retailer in Mexico
"Our trials are well underway and let me say I have never seen anything like it. AquaBella has performed as promised. I even noticed our fish display brighter colors. Expect a large order soon!"
