The first step is making sure ammonia and nitrite are 0, some people say " they are fine" but numbers are >0 which means not fine.
Other than this and other possible disease I had issues with guppies that were either due to weak genes or my soft water was dropping in PH because of low KH so I...
Once I got past the 3 tank mark I bought test strips, so much quicker. I have soft water so I can keep an eye on things a lot easier.

There's many people using similar ammonia and cycle their tank without issue.
I even watched a local hobby breeder dump it in one of his tanks as he told me he'd been using it for years without issue.
They also have the dry ferts which you can mix your self into 2 separate bottles.
I think the cost of buying 1 bottle is equal to buying the dry that will make 20+ bottles
I have a bunch of tanks so this made more cents.
