    I know that you're not supposed to do water changes after you add Tetra Safestart. However, the water level is getting low and the filter is getting loud. Would I be able to top it off with dechlorinated water?

    I always do when using safestart, never seems to affect the cycle for me.

    I've heard that your supposed to let the dechlorinated water sit for 24 hours before topping it off into a TSS cycling tank. Can't say if it will affect it cycling if you don't let it sit, but I remember hearing that somewhere.
