Anaerobic bacteria can survive in sealed containers, however for efficient cycling you need both. The majority Aerobic bacterias will convert ammonia into nitrite, and then Into nitrate. Where as anaerobic will convert nitrate into nitrogen gas so that it may be released Into the system. That's why the most efficient system utilize components like kaldness reactors, as well as areas where bacteria are left undisturbed

Aquariums are ecosystems we are privileged to own, and should be treated with the full level of care we can supply
