Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Stress Zyme (yes or no?)

Guy at the fish store recommended me to get (Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Stress Zyme-1 Gallon) for setting up up my new 180 gal saltwater fish tank.

Its like $40. Hoping I could by without.

Yes or No?

My answer is WHY do you need it... Using additives is not necessary with a new setup and if your using ro/di water water treatments are not needed either.

Brent where is Amherst? Westchester County? What LFS are you going to?

You do not need it . You dont need a jumpstart. Just do a fishless cycle and you will be OK. Article is on this website
