Bottled Beneficial bacteria- any reason not to start a tank with it?

I am starting a tank I would like to add the BB to help it cycle faster. Is there any reason not to use this? There will be a fish in it while it cycles.

Depends on the brand. The biggest reason for not using it is that most brands don't work.

I use and love seachem stability. I like it and believe it works. Definatly can't do any harm.

Bottled bacteria works.....if used correctly.
But like others said brand comes in to play and the only two I have heard positive reviews about is tetra safe start and dr. tims live nitrifying bacteria
