We’re proud to announce that Midland Reefs is to distribute the Dr Tim’s Aquatics range of products in the UK.
Without a doubt this is the finest range of bacterial products available for the aquarium hobby. For those of you not familiar with Dr Tim, Dr Timothy A. Hovanec, here is some background information:
Dr. Timothy A. Hovanec, the eponymous founder of DrTim’s Aquatics, is considered to be one of the World’s premier authorities on nitrifying bacteria in aquaria and closed aquatic life-support systems. Dr. Tim’s research was the first to show the importance that previously unknown species of ammonia and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria play in the nitrification of tropical fish aquaria and other recirculating systems, demonstrating that bacteria of the phylum Nitrospira were the active nitrite-oxidizing bacteria in aquatic systems such as aquaria.
Dr. Tim holds over ten U.S. and foreign patents related to nitrifying bacteria and their application to freshwater and saltwater aquaria.
For 17 years Dr. Tim, was the Chief Science Officer of Aquaria Inc., the parent company of Marineland Aquarium Products, Aquarium Systems (Instant Ocean) and Perfecto Manufacturing, He was in charge of the biology, chemistry and microbial ecology laboratories that comprise Marineland Labs where his groundbreaking research on nitrifying bacteria led to him discovering and developing BioSpira®.
This combination of original research and the practical application of that research makes Dr Tim Hovanec uniquely qualified in the tropical fish hobby when it comes to the subject of bacteria in the aquarium.
