Or do what I did, just use LR. Took 3 weeks to cycle.

Can be, get it out if it's been 2 days. Ppl use it, but IME, LR is enough. Ur safe, just check ur prams. Let us know where your at. Just heed our advice, don't wanna prolong your cycle.

you cant control the decay of organic material.

i let lr cycle mine too. and then we added fish slowly. one or two a week. nothing ever spiked doing that way. im sure that kio can report a similar experience.

like kio said keep an eye on your parameters. if you find something stalling im all for pure ammo.
