I have seen that they work but only if you are feeding the tank with waste and ammonia. This is easy enough for the one sI know because most do a fishless cycle and it is never a worry. I do know that I have found the product has to be refrigerated and has a shelf life of less than 6 months according to the manufacturers I have gotten to respond.

I personally think that seeded sponges, filter media, gravel or ornaments are still the best way to do it because they have all the bacterial strains that are needed to start a complete cycle and not have to worry about the "stages" taking so long.
