Why do you need it? If you put many fast growing stem plants, you can avoid NTS. But still need to add the fish slowly to maintain the balance.

Most people who keep plants could care less about bacteria colonies. The bacteria will actually compete with the plants for ammonium, and starve the plants. Thats why nitrate levels are so low in a plant tank. Ask your friend Art, Raul, he'll tell you!

Cycling is not needed nor desired in a planted tank. But how about in fish-only tanks, would this product work? Is it like BIO-Spira or is it 'snake oil'?
