    Can I add stability to the tank juts to help build a stronger bacterial count.Dont know if the count low or ok.Read in another thread that I must add it to help with cyano.

    stability is a great product, im just concerned that it might worsen the effect of cyano

    It might start the cyano part of the algae cycle, it has to grow at some point......if im not mistaken......:whistling:

    This is not scientific, just from observation, and may just be specific to my tank.

    I have found that adding BioDigest or Stability decreases the dreaded C, while adding BioOptim seam to trigger it in the short term. Disappears however after a day or two again.

    cyano is bacteria not algae but yes twice as irritating. haven't had cyano in my new tank! so based on comment I'm sure it will appear soon!
