    Seems to work

    By Mike on Jun 20, 2021

    In my new tank I added decor from an old tank with old filters and it still didn't cycle, than added this product for the whole tank volume and a few days later the aquarium is cycled after checking it with a test kit. Ready for fish.

    love this stuff!!

    By MissElly on Jun 22, 2021

    We've used this product since the original setup of our fresh water tank. It's great for tank maintenance too. And the price i paid thru Chewy saved us almost $20. Working on a fixed income, this fit in our budget perfectly.

    When in doubt its perfect

    By Angel on Apr 17, 2021

    Quickstart is actually super helpful, when you're having trouble getting your tank to cycle or have a huge bacteria bloom this stuff knocks it right out. It started working in a matter of hours, just make sure you have something to take care of the chlorine and your ph is balanced.

    IS AS ADVERTISED

    By Jalen on Jun 3, 2020

    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!!!

    By niz018 on May 18, 2020

    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 Melanie on Aug 7, 2019

    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.
