    Hi, I have a freshwater aquarium and Iam looking into converting it to marine. I was wondering if tetra QuickStart is suitable for saltwater? I like to use it when doing water changes to give the filter a boost. Thanks in advance xx

    The live bacteria in there will sadly be freshwater only, and thus not suitable for use in marine tanks. For bacteria in a marine tank, you really need to rely on things like live rock and sand, which are essential. For tapwater conditioner, a good one is seachem's "prime".
