Customer Question:

We missed the delivery and our beneficial Bacteria - Dry sat out all night in sub-freezing weather. Will it be ok?

Aquascape Tech Answer:

Yes the dry bacteria is completely fine. It is in a stasis (much like dry yeast) and comes back to life when added to the water. The liquid is alive in a solution and is more vulnerable to temperature swings. This is also why the dry has a longer shelf life. Always store your bacteria products in a temperate area.

 Customer Question:

The scoop in the 1.1 lb Container looks different than the clear scoop that came in my old containers

Aquascape Products Answer:

Not sure why, unless he ordered a different size. The scoop size on the blue one is smaller than the one on the clear one. Unless he has the clear one and is comparing side by side, but if he doesn’t he may THINK that the clear one was smaller. Not sure. See attached picture, the one on the left is the one I sent him, the one on the right is the clear one. The 1.1 lb one comes with the longer handle based on the height of the container.
