(4.7 out of 5, based on 3 reviews)

The only way to make sure the correct number and types of bacteria are available is to inoculate the aquarium with them. Current research indicates the minimum level to initiate competitive exclusion starts at 100 billion bacteria per milliliter on a regular inoculation schedule. Only Cycle and Bio Care products reach this remarkable concentration. The unique processing technology ensures the bacteria in the bottle are dormant. Many other products are still active when packaged, requiring nutrients and oxygen to survive. Often, they have already started their life cycle in the bottle before being added to the aquarium. Cycle's bacteria are dormant and will generally remain suspended for long periods of time. A minimum shelf life of two years is guaranteed. Weekly Maintenance (maintains optimal biological filtration, promotes competitive exclusion): *5 ml (one capful) per ten gallons weekly. New Aquarium Installations: 10 ml (two capfuls) per ten gallons. Repeat every seven days for two weeks. Thereafter switch to weekly maintenance dosage. For marine systems, double dosage is recommended. After Medication: remove medication with carbon or other filtration before application: 10 ml (2 capfuls) per ten gallons. Revert to weekly dosage thereafter. Addition of New Aquarium Specimens: makes fish introduction safer and less stressful and reduces lag time required to achieve low levels of ammonia and nitrite: 5-10 ml (one to two capfuls) per ten gallons.

Works decently

posted 5 years ago

This product is decent, but I prefer SeaChem Stability because it also has beneficial bacteria to break down nitrate.

Pros: Has beneficial bacteria to break down ammonia and nitrite

Cons: Lacks bacteria to break down nitrate.

Iams ProActive Health Multi-Cat Chicken & Salmon Cat Food

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
