Beef is not good. The fibers are too dense and it will decay much slower. Shrimp and lobster tail have very large fibers that break down very easily. They almost pop in your mouth.

Haha I would have put that in but we don't have any shrimp in the house and I can't buy it because I'm hiding the tank XP

It can be used. If you can sneak to the grocer and ask for 1 frozen table shrimp, sometimes they'll give it to you for free. Especially if you ask for a scrap piece.

Is it a lot better?

Lol I don't really go to the shops often and I'm a bit too shy to ask XP but if it will really speed up and help my cycle I might :p
