bacteria in a bottle is lame. A better strategy is to buy cured live rock from all sorts of different regions (Fiji, Tonga, etc.) to sample all different kinds of microorganisms in your tank.

An while you are waiting for your tank to cycle, catch up on all your reading about reef tanks and corals and fish and the time will surely fly by.

there are a few things that you could do:
-you could use some gravel from an already established tank
-you could use some (cured) live rock or sand
-just dont add any of those accelerators (in the bottle), they dont really work.

Sometimes; I truly believe that the LFS believe there propaganda. I think that they are told my the companies that it is good, they say it is good and they make a buck and the customer is happy. Everyone is happy; except it may only save a day or 2.
