Okay, so I went to the pet store today after doing an exhausting search for some form of ammonia to start cycling my tank. Couldn't find ammonia anywhere...and I mean anywhere. So I found this stuff called Nutrafin Cycle that claims to "Immediately Establish Safe Biological Aquarium Environent" and "Allows Immediate Introduction of Fish".
The back reads: Nutrafin Cycle is a responsive biological aquarium supplement that ensures that all aquariums are immediately inoculated with a powerful team of beneficial bacteria, providing a safe biological habitat for your fish. These highly effective micro-organisms will create a biological flora that quickly metabolizes lethal ammonia and nitrite.
It advertises that it is a new proven to work formula.
My question is: do you guys think this will work? Has anyone ever used it before?
The fish guy at the pet store, who seemed to know a lot about fish (surprising, I know), said that this is the only chemical product he knows that actually works. He said most others don't do anything.
Hmmm...I'm desperate to cycle my tank and I can't find the ammonia to do so.
