Fishless cycle in 6 days
I used the One And Only Nitrifying Bacteria along with the Ammonium Chloride Solution from Dr. Tim's Aquatics to do a fishless cycle on a new 55 gallon freshwater aquarium. It worked great. I followed the directions on Dr. Tim's website and by day 6 I hade 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite and 10 Nitrate.
Standard shipping was fast and it arrived wrapped in cold packs.
I am very pleased with this product and I will be using it again.

Worked well--55 Gallon cycled in 12 days
I used Dr. Tim's One and Only on my new 55 gallon aquarium and I was able to cycle the tank completely in 12 days using ammonium chloride as the ammonia source. Great way to cycle for those wanting to completely stock a juvenille mbuna tank right after cycling. In my tank, each is a little different, the ammonia never showed a spike and after about 5 days I started to see nitrite levels go sky high (over 5 ppm) for several days. I did a 30 pct. water change, and within two days nitrites fell to 1 ppm, and then to zero. The tank now tests 0 for ammonia and nitrites 24 hours after adding ammonia to the tank. I strongly recommend this product!

Magic Formula for starting a cycle
My tap water has 0.5 ppm ammonia, so I needed my aquarium to cycle sooner rather than later. I set up a new 10 gallon tank for my single Betta fish, tried a different cycling product, and waited two weeks. No cycle. Then I bought Dr. Tim's One and Only and added it to the tank. Ammonia was 0 in twelve hours. It was like magic! It worked so fast that I didn't ever see the nitrite spike. It's been nearly three weeks since I used the bottle, and my tank is still cycled with 0 ammonia and 0 nitrites. Ammonia goes up when I do water changes, and the bacteria remove it all within 24 hours. It is huge peace of mind to know that my fish now has safe, clean water in his home. I recommend this product to everyone who wants to cycle their tank quickly and safely.
