With all due respect, I would not recommend Stresszyme. Most members here would not recommend it.
Stresszyme (and almost all other bacteria boosters like Cycle, Stability, etc.) contain non-aquatic bacteria (one member here disagrees with this, but most believe this to be true). It drowns/dies in about a week, and that is why the bottle says to add it weekly. This is expensive and can mess up stuff. The bottled bacteria eats the ammonia in the tank, which is why you get good readings. However, it can starve out the natural bacteria you need to cycle your tank. With the addition of the weekly-bacteria-in-a-bottle, your tank cannot complete the natural biological cycle.Why not, just curious?
Were you aiming this at me?Meenu said:(one member here disagrees with this, but most believe this to be true)
You can recommend it if you would like to-it's a free community.I never could find TSS and Stress zyme was all any out of 6 stores I went to had, I didn't know that thanks for the info. I only used it for 4 weeks guess I must have had a cycle after that sometime hmm... been up for 5 months now no losses. Guess I won't suggest that anymore thanks for the correction.
It could've easily been aimed at me also, I've been attempting to defend Stability since it does have some positive reviews and I believe that pushing TSS as some sort of uber-bacteria booster is inaccurate.
