    Remind me...what are you using for an ammonia source. Is that fish-in?

    What's the sell-by date on the TSS? Let me know how it works for you.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you can afford it, that's the way to go. That's what I'd do.

    Darn cycle crashed. I know you know not to put fish in 1.0ppm ammonia. So dose up and let it recycle. Use Safestart if you like.

    Adding a filter might reduce the colony in the other filter by spreading it around. I can't see how it would crash it unless it ran out of food (ammonia). Hang in there. It'll cycle back up in no time.

    Just read your "make sense" thread again. Is that the 2.5g that''s been running smooth and stable for almost a year now? Did you check tapwater? Did you forget to treat your refill water? It only takes once. Any plants die? I can't think of anything that would crash your cycle without killing your stock.

    It's some kind of mini-cycle. Treat it like a newly cycled tank. It'll come back in short order.
