I never rely on these products to fully cycle a new aquarium and filter but to boost and accelerate start up. I have planted tanks, so I'm not in a screaming rush to throw fish in. I use it as insurance and to help seed new filters more quickly. In that application I find it useful and reliable. I don't lose fish at start up. I may use it in my new shrimp tank and see if it's reliable for a straight cycle. But I would continue to use it in any case. Also helpful if medication must be used in a tank.

This work great. I have used it on two tanks and my levels have been great. If you don't want to wait six weeks for a new tank to cycle then this is the answer. I used a quality test kit testing my water and this does what it says it does.

I used this in my new tank because I wanted to get the nitrogen cycle to be in full gear without the long wait. I put this in every new tank with no fish loss. It has the beneficial bacteria and helps keep the amonnia and nitrites at bay.

You have to use approx. 8oz in three days but you will have a full bloomed aquarium. FYI the price here is almost DOUBLE. Got to Pet Mountain for best price, free shipping deals all the time. This product you can find in the $13 range.

I have used it since came out, took to much water out, fish started stressing, found this and 24 hours they were back to normal...Love it!!!
