SafeStart users...advice please!

Ok so my tank has been cycling with SafeStart for about a week and a half. I'm testing my water today. Would it be ok to put the fish in if the readings were good? Jus' wondering. If not that's ok. Thx!

P.S Please respond ONLY if you have have had personal experience with this product. Thx

You can put fish in immediately after dosing, that's what it's designed for.

My lfs recomended it to me but I thought it was the same as cycle so I told them no cause cycle don't work so what does it do give you an "insta cycle"?

I would add that Safestart results are sometimes inconsistent and not a guarantee of an instantly cycled tank. I would personally recommend keeping a close eye on water parameters and treating it as a fish-in cycle until the tank probes stable.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.
