I think most would recommend Stability, but I've had no problem with Safe Start getting my parameters under control pretty quickly. I do tend to trust Seachem a little more than Tetra though.

Thank you! I added the Stability, the only reason I even checked was it was a little white cloudy. I rinsed the filter media in the old water bucket, like I said I didn't change much water and it wasn't "filthy. Any thoughts on what happened ??

Everything was fine before that, I only even did the water change because get a small amount of algae in the corner from the window, water actually looked good
