I've gotten Biozyme to try to cycle my tank more quickly. I read another poster's experience with it...so I guess the procedure is to add Biozyme once a day for a week, while also perfoming 20-30% water changes, then switch to dosages 3-4 times a week. Is this right? There were little instructions on the package itself and I don't want to kill any fish. After I add the Biozyme, is it just supposed to sit on the bottom of the tank and soak in on its own time? When would I change the water then? I've added driftwood and a plant also. Two clowns and a pleco are in the ten-gallon (temporarily!) that I'm trying to cycle. I couldn't find the test kit from Aquarium Pharmaceuticals...the best that Petco could offer was a 5-in-1 test trip from Jungle. It tests alkalinity, ph, nitrites, nitrates, and water hardness. My nitrites were safe, my nitrates were safe, my water is soft, my Ph is about 7.8, but my alkalinity is high. What do I do about that?
