That product is the Truth. My water tested out perfect today...two days shy of being two weeks set-up!! That's right. Two weeks. This Sunday will be two weeks since it's been completely running. I added two glow-light tetras 24 hours after I set it up.
The tank is a 10 gallon tank, not planted. It has all artificial decor in it, set-up to look like the a salt water tank.
I changed the water on Thursday (4 days after set-up) and added Stress Zyme as directed. I changed the water again yesterday, one week later, and added stress zyme.
I tested the water today with a liquid test kit. My tank is cycled. Water is cyrstal clear, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrites, a shade under 10 Nitrates. I added three more Glow-light tetras today and they are swimming around great. Will ad some Harlequin raspora's next week.
I just wanted to inform of begining aquarists of this product. It is excellent. Help maintain your water clean in a cycled tank, and boosts the nitrogen cycle immensly when adding it after set-up. The product is basically bacteria in a bottle. The beneficial bacteria that consume your ammonia that take a couple weeks to form, you add immediately in with Stress Zyme.
Highly Reccommend for new tanks as well a regular use for established tanks.
NOTE: THE WATER THAT I'VE BEEN USING IS BOTTLED SPRING WATER, MUCH MORE PURE AND CLEAN THAN TAP WATER, EVEN WITH CONDITIONERS. THIS MAY HAVE HAD A ROLE IN IT AS WELL, SINCE IT'S VERY LOW TO PROBABLY CONTAINING 0 AMMONIA.
