i think if you add that stuff to the tank your cycle will only be about 25 days, instead of the usual 28.

i wonder why there isn't more reviews on the internet, and how it got to be number 1 on about.com ha

no, i would not waste my money on something like that. i'd rather spend it on corals or fish that will do just fine after a cycle that will build a bacteria colony suitable for the system.

they boast of not having to do water changes any more to reduce nitrates once you use this stuff. that's total B.S.
if you are adding nutrients to the system, you will have to take it out. nothing is going to allow you to add an unlimited amount of food to the system without seeing adverse effects.
aren't those reviews written by the guy who is trying to promote it?

I agree with Mr X. That stuff is trash and dont waste your money on it. Save your money for something worthwhile.

i agree spending money on fish or corals is a better idea
but just out of curiosity, you guys have not tried it right? so how do you know it's junk? i'm sure that was said about biospira when that came out ha! i won't ever talk down about something until i try it, "that's just ignorance talking" my grandma would say.
i would just like to know if this works, because it's a dry compound unlike biospria which is more sensitive to storage...
i would rather have spent a little on this than extra fish especially if i had a tank crash or the like.

I dont need to try it. It`s a waste of money because it`s not needed. An old fashion cycle will accomplish the same thing and take the necessary time to do the job. That the only reason I`m saying it junk because it`s a waste of money. You can call it ignorance if you want but I`m the one saving money on a true and tried way.
