Rated 5 out of 5 by ShannaBanana TETRA SAFESTART PLUS
DON'T buy the regular tetra safestart. it's been discontinued, per their website. so more than likely the bottles on the shelf are old. CHECK THE DATE on the bottom of bottle before purchasing and be sure to get SafeStart PLUS!
, for the review....in a word awesome.
i set up a 20 gallon tank and put in 6 zebra danios 5 days ago. i had a small spike of .50 ammonia for the first couple days, now i have 10 nitrates and ZERO ammonia and never did get a nitrite reading.
i did add about an 1/4 cup gravel from another tank, put it in some pantyhose and tossed in the bottom of tank. that may have helped speed things up too.
but safestart PLUS works.
follow the directions and you'll have a cycled tank in no time. minus all those water changes :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by RRBWG Fishless cycle THIS STUFF WORKS!
Of course in the fish community there is always doubts about bottled beneficial bacteria. But this stuff works! I did a fish less cycle and after a few days into the cycle I got impatient and thought why not try it and boom the next day I was getting nitrite and nitrate readings! I expect my tank to be done cycling in a few days. You would be dumb to not purchase this! I will be using this from now on every time I cycle a tank! Highly recommend!!
