Living Organism Care Information

 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Successful the 1st time with no prior experience. We were able to refer to videos for additional support as well as telephone support. The literature is comprehensive and attractively printed, no flimsy paper or poor English. No parasites or bacterial overgrowth evident, all the vials and their progeny are healthy. I'm so glad we chose Carolina Biologic for our materials.
