    If Nualgi creates a diatom bloom, why does it not work if there are no diatoms in my aquarium.

    Diatoms are present in almost all bodies of water. However there can be situations in a fish tank where there are no starter diatoms for Nualgi to kickstart a bloom. In such situations we recommend that you take 100ml of DO water in a clear glass contai-ner and add 6 ml of Nualgi to it. Leave it uncovered in a spot that gets plenty of natural light, like a window sil. After 5-6 days you will see golden brown diatoms in the water. You can dose that into your tank to get the reaction started
