One And Only Nitrifying Bacteria H2O-PURE 4 oz
This Stuff Actually Works!
I've tried a lot of different products that claim to cycle a tank, but most of them really don't do a very good job of it. Dr. Tim's One And Only Nitrifying Bacteria H2O-PURE is the only one that does what it's supposed to do, at least in my experience.
I usually cycle a tank with ammonia, but sometimes I need to add fish to a new tank right away, and just can't wait for a normal cycle, which takes several weeks. I've used this product twice now, to instantly cycle two different tanks. I added fish immediately, and have never had any ammonia or nitrite readings on either tank. This stuff works. In a pinch, it's the only way to go. I highly recommend this product.

I just started up a new reef tank and decided o give this product a try. I have always been skeptical of "magic nitrifying bacteria", but this stuff was great. In my experience, I feel like this product helped the cycling process move more smoothly. I had 0 measurements across the board more rapidly than ever before. Although, I still gave it an extra week before adding any critters to ensure it wasn't a false sense of security. I feel like this is a good product but constant supervision of the cycling process is still necessary to ensure a healthy tank long-term.

I like this product. It is an easy solution to new tank syndrome. It actually cuts down on the cycling time as well for your tank. I use it after water changes also. Good stuff. Price here is a lot less than at my local fish store.

I have been experimenting with Fishless Cycling and Bacteria in a bottle for years. This is one of the handful that actually works.
I am not convinced it will cycle your tank any faster.That has a lot to do with other factors such as amount of ammonia and temp.
It defiantly will cycle your tank with out fish as long as you add the ammonia source with it. I use it all the time. There has never been a "Mini-Cycle" after words. However, that also has to do with how well you cycle and how many fish you add at once.
