Bottled Bacteria - What Works and What Doesn't

Hi Folks,

I thought it might be useful to list the bottled bacteria products that have proved effective and those that failed to do the job. When I say 'bottled bacteria', I have in mind both the liquid products and those that are sold as bacteria balls, for example.

I am fully aware that there are many factors that determine the success or failure of cycling a tank. I myself have conducted well-controlled experiments with a variety of bottled bacteria. Most of these products contain the all-important nitrifying bacteria but some aim to go the extra mile. For example, aquavitro (Seachem) seed contains both nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria.

In summary, I have had success with Tetra Safe Start but failures with both aquavitro seed and Fritz-Zyme Turbo Start 700.

I look forward to hearing about the experiences of other users.
