what's the difference if any?

What is nutrifying bacteria? Is it the same as seachem stability? Or nutro nutrifying bacteria? Or microlift bacteria? Is there any difference at all?

These may help:
Autotrophic Nitrifying Bacteria and Their Practical Application in a Freshwater Aquarium

Heterotrophic Bacteria and Their Practical Application in a Freshwater Aquarium

I've never tried seachem stability. The jury is out on these still - sometimes they work, sometimes they don't but they never seem to cause any harm and worth a shot.

I've only used stability in one instance, during a mini cycle, it seemed to help, than again there is really no way to know.. I would say it wouldn't hurt if used as a cycle aid towards the end to feed what bb you have already built up?? Make sense??

Yes it doesn't but I wouldn't use seachem stability ever again. I had horrible results with it

Well I used the seachem with a fish in cycle as advised on the bottle and doses daily just like it said and at the end of the week my tank was cycled but like normal I did a huge wc just like advised and then it turns out my tank surely wasn't cycled. I retested and I had ammo and trites but no Trates and it stayed like that for a few more weeks.
