I used tetra safestart about 14 days in to a fishless cycle and within 48 hours my numbers were 0-0-10.

Over the next 10 days with fish in the tank my ammonia never got above .25ppm. I never showed any nitrites.

I did have a mini cycle once i stocked to 100% but a water change and a second filter fixed that in under 24 hours

Though some products that claim to instantly cycle a tank have worked for some people, I wouldnt even bother. Not worth trusting. Large water changes are key.
