Bio-Spira: Have you used it?

How does it work? Has anyone used it? So, you just poor it in, it cycles your tank and that's it? You don't have to use it again?

Link is to Marineland's Bio-Spira pages.Personaly I pour it directly into the filter.It is dormant,so will take 24 to 48 hrs to become active.In a tank that is already partialy cycled you will see some unusaul spikes.The one to really concentrate on is nitrates.It might take up to a week for things to settle out.As long as the fish act healthy and unstressed,don't worry.You cannot overdose with this stuff.It's a one shot application.The only time I"ve used it twice in one tank is when I switched substrata from gravel to sand,and the dose was to prevent a new minicycle.

You add it with the fish. If you add it to the water without fish, or a source of ammonia, the bacteria will not take hold. They need the ammonia to survive. You shouldn't have to use it again (especially at 10-15$ a pop!). Good luck!

I still think knowing how to fishless cycle is a good skill, mind you, but there are instances when you and the fish just don't have that time...

I was reading a discussion on AquariaCentral and it seems that the scientist who invented Bio-Spira and the new Product 'One and Only' has moved away from Marineland???
This is the info on the new product I found in the thread. . . http://drtimsaquatic...eandonlyFW.html
