IMO the additives may help a little but are not going to cycle a tank. I would take the cartridge from the oldest tank, assuming the cartridge has been in for at least 1.5-2 weeks. At 10 weeks of ups and downs with the cycle starting and stopping, I finally added a used cartridge and got it going. Good luck.

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.
