I highly recommend this product. A couple of months ago I had a catastrophic filter failure and effectively had to restart the cycle in my tank, but this time with 16 residents.

Ammonia levels soared, despite trying nearly every bacteria aid product out there, and this continued for 2 months (lots of pwc, more chemicals that I care for). 2 weeks after starting with Tetra Safe Start I have my weekly average ammonia level down from 35ppm to 0ppm and no more nasty chemical additives.

Fantastic - a total must for new or uncycled tanks!

I started a new tank with a few hardy fish. After six weeks there was still nitrite at unacceptable levels. I use Safe Start and 24 hours later nitrite was at zero.
I have occasionally had a small nitrite spike after changing filters and a small dose of Safe Start has rapidly reduced the nitrite to zero.

Used to speed up aquarium cycling by keeping fish safe from harmful ammonia and nitrates and to recover aquarium from mini cycle following ammonia spike, kept fish happy and safe. Can also be used as part of regular maintenance but not necessary once tank is properly cycled.

Note, to use this properly for introducing fish to a new tank then you must add the safe start and leave the tank for 7-10 days to allow the natural friendly bacteria time to grow. The more you stock your tank, the slower the cycle process will take, and the more of this you will need. But it will get you there eventually!

And do not worry about high ammonia readings when using, this is to be expected and the ammonia is neutralised by this product. Just do not let it get above 4ppm. If ammonia levels rocket, use a little more safe start, a drop of Prime or Tetra Ammonia Safe to reduce and keep fish healthy.

Having just started up 2 tropical aquariums I was on the search for a product that made a difference to the inevitable spikes of ammonia and nitrite on a newly set up tank.
I had spent around £30 on different products trying to make sure things went as smoothly as possible to no avail.
After purchasing Tetra Safe Start within 1 day, ammonia and nitrite levels were at 0 ppm and have stayed there since I used the product over a week ago.
I have 3 fish in one tank and 4 in another. Everything is going very well so far, after having a few deaths previous to using Safe Start. Would very highly recommend.

speaking to a few people that have tropical tanks and the have said they have not bothered with this and their fish have not died and they fill their tanks up with TAP water whats going on. I am not taken the chance and this product reduced nitrate levels in 24 hours. i would still use it even with water change. my fish look good. i would buy this again
