I really believe you'l have a mini cycle when you put your rock and sand in your tank. I wouldn't add fish till your cycle is complete and the rock and sand have been in your tank for about 3 days! When I transferred my rock it caused a mini cycle and I lost my cleaner shrimp. It was a sad day. Really try to learn from all our mistakes

I would like to know how many saltwater tanks you've cycled with Dr Tims? How many fish did you immediately put in afterwards and did you get any ammonia spike? Have your instant cycles been more effective in larger tanks or smaller ones? What process have you effectively used to cycle your tanks with this additive?

Iv'e used it in 11 tanks ranging from 20-180 gallons I dose pure ammonia to .20ppm then add a bottle of Dr Tims wait 3 days and test, most times the ammo has dropped to .5-10ppm after 5-7 days i find no ammo no NitrItes, NitrAtes are very high so a large WC is needed After that i add 1-2 small fish wait a few 3-5 days and test again. I have yet to lose a fish
