I waited 2 and half weeks for my tank to cycle without adding beneficial bacteria. I added Dr. Tim's One and Only and had no ammonia in 24 hours and no nitrite within 72 hours. My tank had cycled within 72 hours of adding this product. I highly recommend it for new aquariums.
After 1 week and multiple additions of bacteria have seen no ammonia conversion. To nitrites and nitrates. No I have to spend more money on a different brand to try and get things rolling.
I paired this with their bottle of ammonia and followed directions specifically. I've done fishless cycles before and never had this much of a problem while spending this much extra money.
So I dont leave many reviews for products I've bought. Let me tell you, my 60 gallon new aquarium was milky white. Every aquatic enthusiast said to wait and do nothing. So after losing a favorite Oranda, I had to try something. Dr. Tims to the rescue. In 48 hours, it completely cleared, ammonia is 0. Fish are happy and active. Ive added pic to prove it wirks!
Unfortunately there was no change in water parameters after using this product. I doubled the amount needed, using the entire 120mL on a 55 gallon tank. Ammonia did not budge from prior test after a full 24 hours. Still no signs of nitrite or nitrate. It was cooler when this shipped too so I was hoping heat wouldn't impact the effectiveness.
First time using this. I use to use Stability and had better results. Although many swear by this i will not.
All the fish ppl said this was sooo much better. I poured the whole bottle, that should treat 60 gallons, into a 10 gallon tank and nothing happened for 9 days. I put the 40 drops of ammonia(4 drops per gallon as instructed) and it brought the ammonia up to 4ppm for all 9 days, No nitrites and no nitrates. I ended up draining the tank and starting over with Fluval, which I know works in 3 days. That was last night and I already have nitrates with Fluval.
I tried doing the fast track tank cycle following instructions to the T and the ammonia is the only thing that worked. I poured the entire bottle in my 40 gallon tank and in the filter. I can’t get the ammonia back down and it’s still showing 0 nitrites with PH of 7.6 after almost 2 weeks. I haven’t been able to even add the extra dose of ammonia in to help kick off the bacteria so I ended up doing a water change and adding other beneficial bacteria & now my tank of finally starting to cycle. I’m so bummed after all the good reviews that it didn’t work with paying all of this money for “the best bacteria” and regular bacteria that’s much cheaper is what’s working
My 60 Gallon aquarium wasn’t cycling fast enough so I decided to add this and the ammonia at the same time my ammonia spiked the next day then right after the nitrite spiked now nitrate is spiking so basically I had tried to cycle normally with rotting food and other thing but it still was 1 month later and nothing had really spiked so if you want to cycle a tank in like 2 weeks use this stuff.
Ordered from chewy. Best by date is nov 2019. It is dec 2020. Not sure if it’s effective. According to dr Tim the bacteria lives up to a year.
