    5.0 out of 5 stars Saved my fish 7 Oct 2013
    By Podlet
    Size Name:250Ml|Verified Purchase
    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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great for cycling a new tank 24 Feb 2013
    Size Name:250Ml|Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy 15 April 2014
    Size Name:250Ml|Verified Purchase
    This product was recommended on a tropical fish breeding website. According to them, it prevents many common ailments in tropical fish. I have been using the product for over a year now and have not lost any fish due to water changes, filter cleaning or related tasks. It's really brilliant value for the price as replacing fish can be very costly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well 27 Jun 2013
    By GC_13
    Size Name:50Ml|Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ammonia crisis 19 Sep 2013
    By Mr J
    Size Name:250Ml|Verified Purchase
    I became aware of this product through an online forum. I have a tropical fish tank and although the tank appeared to have cycled several weeks previously I suddenly had a large ammonia spike. The tank is only 45 litres but I used the entire bottle over a period of 2/3 weeks, adding more with each partial water change. The ammonia levels dropped after this time. This product is great for people like me who have an established tank and are having "water issues" or for those who are just setting up. Tetra recommends cycling a tank using Safe Start with only a few fish to begin with but as I have only 6, it was the ideal product. Note; I had fish and ammonia before I used Safe Start - the bacteria in the bottle need something to feed upon.
