 hi  guys  
 i  am  not  sure  if  i  am  posting  it  in  the  right  section  
 i  have  just  purchased   this  bottle   that  says  beneficial  bateria  from  fins  and  flora  to  help  faster  build  up   of   good  bateria  my  question  here  is  when   do  i  add  it   after  a  water  change  or  when  i  just  top  up  the  water  of  the  tank  that  happens  due  to  evaporation
 i  tried  goggling  things  out  but  thing  turned  from  bad  to  worse  and  i  am  a  fix
 as  according  to  other  fish  forum  sites  it  says  i  cannot  incorporate  beneficial  bateria  it  has  to  be  made  or  created  by  the  tank
 not  sure  if  i  am  right  
 so  i  have  not  used  the  bottle  needed   advise  before  i  can  start  to  use  it
 i  have  5  Green  terrors  currently  all  babys  in  a  3ft  tank
 Pls  guide  me  
 heres  the  link
 Fins  and  flora

 Ok,  so  there  are  two  things:
 
 1.  How  to  quick-start  the  cycling  process  for  a  newly  setup  tank,  where  the  denitrifying  bacteria  are  not  present  which  helps  to  break  down  the  ammonia  in  the  tank  which  otherwise  is  toxic  to  the  fish.
 
 2.  How  to  help  promote  growth  of  denitrifying  bacteria  and  keeping  the  environment  clean  by  preventing  Anaerobic  organism  to  thrive  which  are  not  good  for  denitrifying  bacteria.
 
 What  you  have  got  is  no.1  (This  will  only  help  you  to  quick  start  the  cycling  process  and  help  you  introduce  fish  immediately).  Using  what  you  have  got  now  will  not  harm  your  fish.  But  you  need  not  use  it  regularly  as  denitrifying  bacteria  colonize  themselves  over  a  period  of  few  weeks.  
 
 After  that  you  must  stick  on  to  do  frequent  partial  water  change  and  can  also  consider  API  Stress  Zyme.  This  will  take  care  of  no.2  (http://www.apifishcare.com/product.php?id=653#.VPM3gC4XGDk)
 
 So  in  case  if  you  are  doing  a  complete  water  change  and  clean  your  entire  aquarium  then  you  must  start  from  no.1
 
 Hope  this  helps  a  bit.....

 Hi  Nik,
 
 Like  Arun  said  API  stress  zyme  is  really  good  product  comparing  to  quick  start,  because  quick  start  you  can  use  only  in  initial  stage  but  stress  zyme  you  can  use  once  you  disturb  the  substrate  or  replanting,  but  check  the  expiry  date  of  the  bottle  because  most  of  the  sellers  have  expired  bottle  if  you  use  the  expired  one  it's  very  toxic  to  your  aquarium  even  API  itself  told  not  to  use  bottle  expired  stress  zyme  product  because  the  bacteria  should've  died  already  and  it  will  become  toxic,  so  do  keep  a  eye  on  that.
