Biobacteria recommendation


Recommended Posts

Tried stability and microbacter 7, both do fine. Stability after 4 days using NSW with dry rock, then added a Butterflyfish in. No issues.

On the contrary I got too hasty with microbacter 7, ran it for a week, added the entire bottle over that duration in a 300+gal system, thinking it was enough to immediately put in several medium-large fishes. Lost all of them in the process.

The longer your cycle, the safer it tends to be. But yes bottled bac does work- just don’t get your expectations too high if you’re adding a lot of livestock in all at once
