Tetra has upgraded its FilterActive water conditioner, which it says ‘has been optimised to keep the filter and substrate cleaner for longer’ while supporting the biological balance in the aquarium after water changes.

The aquatics brand has also relaunched its Medica range, which includes three new formulas and an improved packaging for Tetra Medica GeneralTonic Plus, Tetra Medica Contralck Plus and Tetra Medica FungiStop Plus, which aim to treat most common fish diseases.

The improved Tetra FilterActive formula now contains natural strains of sludge-reducing cleaning bacteria in concentrated form to accelerate the break down of organic pollutants and helps reduce sediment in the filter and aquarium. This extends the intervals between cleaning, improves filter performance, encourages substrate activity and prevents decay.

It also contains live nitrifying bacteria, which break down ammonia and nitrite in the aquarium.

Tetra Medica GeneralTonic Plus is a multi-purpose remedy suitable for the most common fish diseases helping to treat bacterial infections, skin and gill parasites. It can also be used to treat wounds and fungal infections.

Tetra Medica ContraIck Plus is a fast-acting treatment for white spot disease and other skin and gill parasites. Tetra Medica FungiStop Plus is a fast-acting remedy for fungal infections, as well as egg fungus, mouth rot and external bacterial infections.

Refreshed Tetra Goldfish Goldmed targets the most common of goldfish diseases, such as white spot, fin rot, and skin and fill parasites.

Ashleigh Foster, senior marketing manager, said: “At Tetra, we’re passionate about making fishkeeping as easy and enjoyable experience as possible. That’s why we continually review our ranges for ways to improve their functions.

“What’s more, we’ve recently refreshed our packaging to offer clearer visuals, descriptions and guidelines to make it even easier to understand how our products can support fishkeepers in ensuring their fish and aquariums remain healthy.”

The new FilterActive range is available in 100ml and 250ml from November at an RRP of £6.15 and £10.80.
The Tetra Medica Contralck Plus, FungiStop and General Tonic range comes in 20ml bottles, with the GoldMed treatment available in 100ml doses. The range is available in independent pet stores from November with an RRP starting from £5.09.
