I have read the multiple reviews and comments on how nitrifying bacteria in a bottle is a hoax. Being impatient and a little stubborn I gave the product a try. It was at my local Petco and the price seemed a little better than the others on the market. Well I will report back to you that it works! I started with a pristine virgin tank nothing was used from a pre-established tank. I even ran more or a bio load than directed per the bottle. It took a week for the tank to stabilize and "fully cycle" by day 2 I was having a my nitrogen spike, and by day 3 it was going down until by day 7 it was undetectable. I cycled a 55 gal tank, but I am planning on using this product on my 75, and 55 show tanks on the main floor. This is a good product for a good price and look forward to using this again.
I would recommend this to a friend!

This is the best. You must cycle and if this is a start up tank, this product will do the job in half the time. If you are an expert at cycling, 18 to 36 hours cycled MAX. Switching during a weekly, you would be a fool not to use this product. I ran out of nutri fin which is a A product so I switched to Colony. This product does it the right way with no chemicals, natures way. This product is A PLUS!
