Safe Start for cycling tank?
I'm upgrading from a 20g to a 75g tank. Everything going into the 75g tank is new (heaters, filter, substrate, driftwood, etc). I bought a fluval 405 canister filter and my substrate is pool filter sand, which I'm having second thoughts on anyway. I would like to grow some low maintenance plants and I'm not sure how well they'll do in sand. Then again, the plants in my 20g never grew either and I had eco complete in that one.
Anyway, has anyone had any experience using Tetra's Safe Start for cycling a tank? I don't want to use fish to cycle my tank. I was reading about fishless cycling but if I could speed it up a bit by using Safe Start that would be great.
