    IS AS ADVERTISED

    By on

    I have an aquatic turtle tank and I use this to cycle my tank and while doing water changes. I have a test kit and it really did keep my ammonia at the correct levels and I'm gonna be using this product forever. It has a measurement cap on the top for accuracy and I would 100% recommend!

    do not buy!!!

    this stuff claims to help start the cycling process but it doesn’t. in a lot of cases it actually HURTS the cycle and messes it up. you’re better off using the food cycling method. save yourself the money and don’t get it!!!’

    Great for filter media changes and adding new fishes

    By on

    We always use this when setting up a new tank, changing filter media or adding new fishes. Instantly creates a great environment for fish to survive water and filter changes and we also use a stress coat too.

    No difference

    By on

    It's been two weeks since I added Quick Start to my new 75 gallon tank. First I followed the dosing instructions on the bottle. After 7 days with no impact to the ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate levels in tank, I poured in the rest of the bottle. It's now been 14 days and the product has had no effect on the aquarium whatsoever. Waste of money.

    Best stuff for busy folks

    By on

    I recommend this stuff hands down. I have turtles and fish in a huge mixed tank, and I don't have anywhere to treat that much water weeks ahead of water changes. Also, the turtles can trigger pretty rapid changes in water quality that need to be addressed quickly for the health of the fish. This stuff saves me every time. I can change out the whole tank or set up an emergency tank if I need to with no worries about fish loss. Quick start works exactly as advertised and is literally a life saver. I always keep some on hand just in case.

    New Tank Set-Up

    By on

    Quick start makes setting up a new tank easy. If you don’t have the patience to let your tank cycle before adding fish... this product is for you! It also makes tank maintenance easier as well.
