    Am I missing something? I thought you had seeded gravel and/or media.

    Well...I will just see what happens...if it doesn't do a thing at all, I will probably just end up getting safestart....

    Well, Stability is way better than Nutrafin Cycle. It's the one professional aquarist Carl Strhmeyer recommends. But his article was written before BioSpira morphed into Safestart and Dr Tim's O&O, and all the rest came onto the market.

    Well...I didn't want to wait any longer so I bought some. I hope it works because I am not spending any more money on bacteria.

    Not for cycling. It disolves gunk and promotes a biofilm for the real bacteria to latch onto. You still have to wait for the real nitrifying bacteria to fall out of the sky. As far as I can tell, it does not contain nitrosomonsas or nitrospia (or nitrobacter), which are autotorophic bacteria. It has heterotrophic bacteria.

    I do have another cycled tank, but it's just my little 2.5g betta tank....

    Ha! I always knew I wasn't entirely human...

    Sometimes there just isn't any bacteria in the air when you need it. I thought you had another cycled tank..not so?

    Btw, green is the color that humans have the most acuity in apprehending.

    Alright, so my water params as of today before my water change were: 1ppm or .5ppm ammonia (that stupid test is so hard to read accurately), 0 nitrite, 2-3ppm nitrate. I ahven't been able to change the water before today because I have been sick. Looks like I will be picking up a bottle of safestart after school tomorrow...This has got me really frustrated.

    Well the way I see it, a bottle of aquasafe costs as much as a school of replacement tetras....and who knows how long it would take to cycle then...you gotta pick your battles I guess...
