Hi, I have researched the various cycling methods online. I have a 2.5-year old daughter who expects to see 3 fishies in the tank asap, so a possibly lengthy fishless cycle is not an option. (It's a 20 gallon high.) My LFS is great, been around 25 years, I trust them, etc. They have been selling Nitromax for several years, and customers are very happy with the results (and most often use it for a fish-in cycle).
Who has used Nitromax with a fish-in cycle with good/bad results?
Who has used Nitromax with a fishless cycle (with pure cleaning ammonia as the bacterium food) with good/bad results? How much does it speed up the cycle?
The only negative reviews I've found have been from people who used it improperly (as a fishless cycle without ammonia--which is pretty funny--poor bacteria didn't stand a chance!).
Thanks for any help!
