Hey Shane,

I found this website and they have a very good deal for CUC, I mean I spend almost $20 for just small number of CUC, total regret for not researching enuf, but since you haven't started, here is a website for u to check out.

www.cleanercrews.com, great package and I think the shipping charge is not bad considering how much they sell it for.

I just thought I want to share with ya

No, IMO patience is a virtue. I would never do it but that`s just me. Why spend money that can be done for almost nothing? Also I`ve never used it so I cant tell you what the results of it are. Just do a regular fishless cycle and you cant go wrong. JMO

Hi Melosu, yeap, I forgo the idea of biospira. Thanks for the response. I do have one concerning thing though, how come my diatoms seems to be much more now? Is it because I have 10-12 hours lighting per day? I have 2 Nassarius and 1 Astrea Snails, planning to get another Astrea and 4 hermit crabs. What do you think I should do or is this process normal? I mean this is growing rapidly

Congrats Shane. You the man. Bawel, you will see diatoms during the cycling process. They usually burn themselves out. Can you get us a pick of it so we can make sure they are diatoms. Maybe a little flow in that area.
