The nitrogen cycle is a common biological process that occurs innature, and it also occurs in our aquariums. In aquariums it’s an essential process because it removes toxic wasteproducts and coverts them to a much less toxic form.  The process is performed by bacteria, whichwe call beneficial bacteria (or BB). These beneficial bacteria colonize any surface they…
