Stress zyme

I just bought aquarium pharmaceuticals stress zyme plus. Its a biological filtration booster. I read that they don't really work while trying to cycle a tank. But my tank is established already and the biological filter went a little wack. So I'm going to do a 75% water change and put some of this in there. Do you think it would make a difference?

No, probably not. If you're going through a mini-cycle first I'd figure out the reason why if you don't already know and the best thing to do to get through it is daily testing of the water and water changes as needed.

I have not heard many positive things about it actually working, but it will not hurt and might help.

I haven't tested yet. I have to wait till Monday to buy another test kit. But I figured I'd buy a little bottle of that for a few bucks today hoping maybe it would do some good.

I'd focus on the water changes till things get leveled out.

I did a 75% today and cleaned all the gravel. Should I do one daily?

It depends on the toxin level. How do you know things went out of wack?

I'm not completely sure. But I've had a few fish die in the past week.

When I first started my tank I tried using the Stress Zyme Plus with NO success. I was testing the water parameters constantly too and zilch nada. Then I started researching and found people have used Bio-Spira with great success. I couldn't find it anywhere until I found a bottle of Tetra Safe Start that contains Bio-Spira. I can attest that this worked for me in jump-starting my cycle. Good luck!
