I just found a brand new bottle of this in the back of my cabinet. My tank is fully cycled and healthy at the moment aside from nigh nitrates from my tap. Is this stuff used only for initially cycling a tank or does it have any additional benefits?

I use this stuff 24- 48 hours before major cleanings to help break down sludge and detritus. I find it makes my filter sponges easier to rinse out and helps make my hardscapes easier to scrub. I don't use it often, 2 or 3 times a year. Unless I'm working on a diatom or excess plant matter issue, then I use it every day after daily water changes until the problem is resolved. It might not do anything, honestly, but it's a habit I've built and it doesn't harm anything so......
