I cannot believe I waited months to cycle my previous tank when I couldve just bought this stuff and been done with it in a week. Yeah, that's right, I said "a week". It was actually shorter than that. I overdosed Bio Spira for my size tank then started ammonia dosing immediately after. I also added a new Marinepure plate. It took 3 days to clear out 3ppm of ammonia. The second dose of ammonia took 2 days to clear out 3ppm. And the third dose..............you guessed it, cleared it out in under 24 hours. After the 3rd dose I started testing nitrite and the numbers were off the chart. I was thinking "knew it was too good to be true". Gave it another day and tested again and my head almost exploded when it came back 0ppm. The nitrite test only goes up to 5ppm and it was well beyond that for sure so I just couldnt believe it. Tested 3 more times with the same readings. This stuff is amazing. From now on I'm using this stuff with Marinepure bio blocks for every new tank build. A million stars!!!!!!!
Cycles in less than 5 days By Garrett on 3/10/2017

I've used this on all tanks but my first...The first took 4 weeks to cycle...all the rest took 5 days. Also, I notice a cleaner tank using this, I suspect it has nitrate fixing bacteria, as well!

Used it following both copper treatment and tank transfer method for new fish during quarantine in two different tanks. No ammonia spike, barely detectable nitrites, which quickly went to zero in a newly set up quarantine tanks.

This product is no joke. It really works. I like the fact that this helped my water perams get stable again. After the tank crashed due to someone who poured something in the tank (made ammonia present was about 10ppm) killed everything in the tank. Did a giant water change, poured this sucker in, and bam, water has been stable for a couple of weeks now. So, yes I do recommend this to anyone who's tank has crashed or is starting up a new tank. It's very beneficial to add this!

2.5 weeks, done. By JackKingCole on 5/5/2016

It all depends, do you run BB or have sand? How much rock? whats your filtration? IME, sand with a mechanical filtration and will cycle using BIO SPIRA in about 2.5 weeks. That does not mean add livestock, people,. It means pay attention to your parameters. Titrate, titrate, titrate, then add slowly. Good product for sure. Thank you, Dr. Tim for developing this.

I was starting a new tank, 90 gallons of total volume, with dry rock and live sand. I after I filled the tank up I added the BioSpira by itself and added some fish food and shrimp to the tank. I had an ammonia spike over about a 36 hour period and I have been reading 0 ammonia ever since. I have recently added 5 green chromis, two peppermint shrimp from my other tank and some snails, and I am still reading 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 0 nitrates.
I saw this product getting bashed on the forums, I almost passed it up, glad I didn't. It works just like it says. I don't believe I would have put my fish in during that first few days but I certainly helped the cycling process tremendously. I believe the bottle says 24 hours or something like that but it was more like two days for the ammonia to show up and dissipate. I still waited about 2-1/2 to 3 weeks before adding my fish.
This product isn't a complete cycling solution, and testing is necessary. I am very pleased with it.

I used this to speed up my cycling process of my Pukani live rocks. Rocks were ready, ammonia free cured and cycled in about 30 days.
