This is probably what happened with my 32, my canister filter wasn't working properly for a few weeks (one of the valves on the hoses was jammed and wouldn't open fully).never had a problem with it.
if your tank doesn't cycle in a week then your filter is probably too small for the tank, or doesn't filter enough water (which is normaly the case with all Package Tanks Deals which give you a filter that can only filter the amount of water you have in your tank once an hour, or with internal filters).
Thank you for the heads up.Yes, I have a vote. So subtract 1 from Yes
if used properly, and many things can be listed as to proper or improper use im sure, it WILL work ...and also, if the date on the bottle isnt expired, or even close to being expired, it WILL work...now, ive only used it on 55 gals or smaller ...ive used it for after having fish and learning about it, to start up tanks, and for a mini cycle(now i have used media and TSS)...when using it, ive had ZERO passings...so it does what it says it will do IMO and experience...I adore the product and am so very glad its been reformulated to be able to do the same as bio spira without the expense, and refrigeration ..and I feel so firm about this product because ive tried cycle, stresszyme, biozyme, stability, nitrobax and dr tims without the same result ( I was desperate when cycling with my oscars LOL)Thank you for the heads up.
The only reason I'm being picky is that a previous discussion made a distinction between BioSpira and TSS.
Edit: As of this posting, we have six votes of "it worked as stated," two of "it didn't work" and three of "it sort of worked." Further, a couple of the people who voted "it worked" have used it on multiple tanks and had it work every time. Pretty good track record so far, no?
