I have been keeping fish on and off for about 7 years. I know all about cycling a tank and testing my water. In the past we have tried everything we could find to speed up the cycling and found it's best to just wait it out.
Someone suggested using "stability " to help things along? Any thoughts?

I avoid the cycling b y starting the tank heavily planted. So don't use any of any kind. The plants consume ammonia directly preventing the dangerous spikes. then aerobic bacteria build up and consume the ammonia so the plants are forced to consume nitrates for nitrogen.

But that's just me and my .02
