Silver is posionous so it will kill any bacteria, algea or whatever could grow in your loop. You typically buy them as thin strips that are coiled up, drop them in your reservoir or wherever is safest (read, wont end up in your pump).
Biocide is also poisonous and does the exact same thing (typically a copper based active ingredient), but is a liquid and needs to be re-applied whenever you change the water. You can get it alone (Dead Water or PT-Nuke are common) or whatever coolant you buy may already have a biocidal agent in it.

You just add on to your loop to stop algae or anything else growing in your coolant by killing it however i have only read over this briefly so you may want to wait for someone who knows more for a more in depth and detailed answer.
