Bacteria colonies take time to grow to handle increased bio-loads. Bacteria need oxygen and food to survive. How do they survive in a bottle for over a year?
I need to see real scientific proof of those claims or test it myself. It seems too good to be true, so maybe I'll set up my QT tank, add some uncured LR
and see what happens. I'll report my findings if I complete this test.
