I've always been a little bit dubious about these products. I cannot see how it's possible instantly cycle and aquarium, after all you need to encourage the bacteria to grow inside your filter, simply adding a product will not achieve this. Anyway, there is nothing wrong with using this product, I suppose it will have some effect at removing toxins, but I'm certainly not in favour of using it to cycle and aquarium.

I don't think you'll mess things up, but I would probably stick to cycling a tank in a way that most people understand.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I advocate patience. :evil:

10 weeks total. B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Seachem stabillity can boost your cycling process. Like most products it is execptionally effective if used correctly.

But I would only advise its use if you find your cycling process has stalled.

Considering this post is a monbtyh old. If you are still waiting on the cycle I would now consider useing it.

Seachem stabillity does exactly as the name suggests. It stabalizes the chemical balance/ nitrate cycle in the tank, by useing bacteria.

Ive used it for boosting a cycle when first starting (after waiting almost 2 for the tank to cycle)

and to stabilize a cycle moving house. I had to put my fish in a much smaller tank for a short period. When moving the fish back to the main tank after a few weeks I used seachem stabillity to solve an ammonia spike.
