Atm colony

I know many of u guys are against this instant cycling especially if its a product fom the show tanked. Well I purchased there colony and paradigm and I can't believe the results I have almost like clockwork I always had hi nitrate since I used there products everything has been perfect all levels are at zero and my fish seem to be perfect picture of health I also used paradigm from atm which is a stress coat loaded with vitamin c and aloe and it does not drive my skimmer nuts like API stress coat amazing products has a shelf life of 7 weeks unopened and 2 weeks when opened I have to praise this product as absolutely amazing 110 times better than bio spira my tank is flourishing

Looking at the pic off the test results they aren't looking all 0. The nitrate level looks at least at 10 if not higher .

I have levels that look at least that good without biological additives. Everyone wants a quick fix, but I'm not sure that its out there. IMO

I'm with Gregcoyote on this one...I like to think of starting/running a successful tank like driving a race car: go too fast and you'll crash.

These products add bacteria to the water column, but it takes time for the colonies to establish in the rock and sand. That's why us "old school" folks like to cycle for a few weeks, to give the rock and sand an opportunity to become populated with the BB. If you do your weekly PWC after you add this stuff, you're removing the BB from the water column, and they may not have had a chance to establish in the rock, causing a mini-cycle to occur.
