    Hi guys, just a few questions!

    1. Does anyone know if cycle boosters that give good bacteria are worth it?

    2. For HOB filters, should I remover the floss? I was told it was a nitrate factory?

    Hi
    1. Products like stability and prodibio help with bacteria etc but need to follow the directions to the tee. Only when ammonia and nitrite read 0 is it safe to add livestock

    2. Filter floss is only an issue if allowed to get dirty. Change when it's brown/black

    I have heard good things on chemi pure but only cost effective for small tanks IMHO
