1. It is easier to measure and dose.
2. It is immediately available for uptake by the bacteria.
3. Because it is inorganic (i.e. lacks carbon), it does not encourage early growth of competing heterotrophic bacteria.
4. Unlike organic nitrogen sources, it will not foul aquarium water by introducing phosphate and dissolved organic matter.
5. NitroCycle encourages fast colonization of nitrifying bacteria on synthetic bio
