Lots of people say it is a waste. I am not sure either way. I would say add it at the same time as the shrimp.
Since my tank is a birthday present to my wife, everything I spend going forward is just an extension of my love for her right?

After looking at what nite out bacteria is and what it is suppose to do I don't know if it will actually make the tank cycle faster or not. It may also give false readings on the ammonia like prime does since it probably binds with the ammonia to make it less toxic.

After talking with a marine biologist I started using stability when I add fish to my tank. It doesn't do a lot for the bacteria like it claims but actually helps with the slime coat.
