PS: I am doing the fishLESS cycling
I have no idea about the stability product. I simply take the ammonia and pour it in the tank to about 5ppm and I keep adding the same amount everyday. And once my tank starts reading nitrites I lower the amount of ammonia added to about 3ppm. And then once the tank starts reading nitrates, you are done.
I don't trust any of those "bacteria in a bottle" things.
