Parameter problems? Heres the answer..!

Having problems getting your water to test right? Having an ammonia spike or just trying to cycle your tank? I would HIGHLY reccommend using NUTRI SEAWATER. You can buy it at your lfs. It has natural, live bacteria that you CANNOT get using salt and water mixes. It actually comes from the sea. Its also amazing for pwc. I use it and my lfs guy told me my water could NOT be any better! Please try it, you cannot go wrong :]

If anyone tries to sell you on an 'instant" cycle product run the other way. You can't have a cycled tank from using water or anything else that promises instant fish capability. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not to mention the bacteria lives on your LR and other surfaces in the tank, the water holds little to no bacteria.

Wow.

I just went to the website that link pointed to. They say "100% Natural " then say it's "Fortified with QX-23 Enriched
Solution"
and then have the gall to say "Nutri-Seawater is Naturally Filtered - Does not remove or modify what mother nature intended." How do you reconcile all that? Oh, and they also tell you that the QX-23 (which they list out as a lot of what we might call trace elements) is used to preserve the bacteria while the stuff is sitting on the shelf.
