I'm glad it was so easy even without the BioSpira! Marineland has a website, but I'm not sure it will offer much along the way of finding it. It might be a USA only product...

Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!

I'm thinking it is only USA as none of the fish stores knew what I was talking about when I askled for it.

Alas...

Bummer. Maybe you can invent something like it. It's really just "plants in a pouch" Not sure what kind of plants though. Algone also claims it contains "enzymes". Would you like me to send you a pouch? :) PM me your address and I'll send one to you... I'd be careful of adding it though. Once it's added I'm not sure what would happen if you take it out!!

I can get allgone, but not BioSpria. Thanks for the offer though - I appreciate it :)

Oops- that's right! I've been on too many threads! The BioSpira I can't send. Needs to be refrigerated, or I'd offer that too... :)

I could send bio-spira. Shipping would have to be fast though - 5 days tops.

Thanks

However, I have no more tanks to be cycled and if I do I think I'll just stick with the method I last used as it seemed pretty quick to me and if you think about it, just as quick as BioSpira as you have to monitor water params daily for about a fortnight :P I think, whereas after 8 days, I could monitor as normal :D

Thanks though.

yay! i cycled a 30 gallon tank in 6 days!!!

1 day off, but it's still pretty quick and cheap.

i upgraded to a 30 from a 10 gallon.

from the 10 gallon i moved everything:

gravel
rocks
plants
even the 10 gallon filter, i had it run simultaneously with the new filter.
and the fishes.

so it's pretty much the old tank, but new water and added gravel.

this is definitely the cheapest and easiest if you are upgrading.

guppies!!
