Cycling Worries... Right Now Bacteria too good to be true?

Do you guys reccomend using Right Now Bacteria?

I read it can take 24 hours to get the tank cycle all the way done. Is this true?

I have tried a similar product in a little (10 gallon) qt tank with very little result. Some others on this forum have had the same experience. For SW one of the biggest rip offs out there right now IMO.
Here is a much cheaper (and better) way to cycle a SW tank.

The only other ingredient you need is paitients, it takes time to do it right.

Sorry, I wish it wasn't. I flushed my 20 some dollars down the drain trying it out.
Just would hate to see you do the same.

I wasted my money on Turbo Start, and it's the same thing.

LR or the shrimp method is the best way to cycle that I've read.
