Tetra Safestart or one of a number of other reputable bottled products (those that contain the right, autotrophic bacteria) are equally as reliable, with the advantage of never having been subjected to other livestock and their health. Plus, no snails. And, of course, a major price advantage.
It's interesting to me that, even though that thread was specifically about the Angel Plus product, not one mention was made in four pages about any of these other live-bacteria alternatives.
I was giving opinion based on my own experience. With these other products I have no experience.
