    Excellent for new tanks. I use a little bit every water change too just to keep everything in the tank healthy. I have a small tank and do weekly water changes (30%) to keep the water clear and the fish happy. Use with AquaSafe every time. If you have a childs medicine syringe (the one without the needle!) it fits perfectly in the bottle opening and ensures you put the correct amount of liquid in the new water.

    Safe Start provides a very quick way to start the nitrogen cycle in your aquarium. Using Safestart I was able to start a medium sized aquarium in little under a week. Firstly, it is important to make sure you set your aquarium up before you add fish or livestock into it. Then, once you have set everything up as required and dechlorinated your water - start your filter and add Safe start to the water. The instructions state you can then add one or two fish, however for the best results I recommend adding a drop or two of household ammonia or a few pinches of food. Once you've done this, test the water daily until your ammonia levels are 0 ppm then add a little more ammonia or fishfood and then test again. All being well your ammonia levels should quickly drop back to zero and at this point you're ready to add your fish to the tank (but don't overstock it! Start cautiously with one or two fish). You'll know when you've got your healthy bacteria in your filter as your water will have a earthy "fresh cut grass" type smell and your ammonia levels will stay at a constant zero.

    The only thing to remember once your tank is cycled is to make sure that you only rinse your filter material in syphoned off tank water and do not add chlorinated water. This prevents killing off the bacteria that turn the ammonia from fish poop and decaying matter into nitrites and nitrates.

    A cycled aquarium helps keep your fish healthy but isn't a substitute for regular part-water changes and you should still regularly vacuum your gravel to remove the physical poops!

    2 years ago when I first set up my darling wifes aquarium I initially used some APS product and then used Evolution Aqua's Pure Aquarium Balls - none of them worked. Using the APS testing kits could not detect and nitrites or nitrates for weeks. That was until I used Tetra Safe Start. This is the product that kick started my fish tank and within days I noticed nitrites and then nitrates. Was so glad to get the tank cycled after weeks of agony. Don't buy anything else but this. Oh and buy some Seachem Prime for conditioning water.

    To my surprise this does actually work. I can't say whether or not it really does help establish the filter bacteria or if it's more of a temporay fix until the desired bacteria naturally populate but it helps in keeping your tank water safe if there are ammonia/nitrite issues. Is expensive for what it is, though, as there are other products on the market that can keep your tank safe in emergencies that are better value

    I'm a novice when it comes to keeping fish but i've used this from day 1 and 4 months later, the fish are still alive. In fact, there must literally be something in the water as 6 fish are now 17.

    This is the best liquid to use if you are recycling your fish tank for the first time...it allows the new fish to be introduced to the fish tankl, moere or less instantly, without having to wait days or weeks before introducing them to the aquarium... Highly recommended...

    Received quickly, but note that this is a small bottle that will treat just 60 litres of water. My tank has become overcrowded with Molly's giving birth regularly. The water has become quite free and I've been told that this is due to ammonia in the water, so I'm looking forward to giving the tank a good clean and seeing it clear and fresh again.
