Hey MFT! It's been a few years, but I don't trust any online fish community more with their opinions! I have a co-workers who drives me up the wall with his suggestions of bacterial supplements. Got ammonia in your tank? Add Stability. Fish dying? Add Stability. Putting in new fish (in the middle of your cycle!?!)? Add Stability. Cycle in its 3rd week and it's still not over? Add Stability. Don't even get me started on his love-affair with carbon. Ugh. I'm a big fan of adding bacterial supplements at the beginning of a cycle, following the directions, and then letting things go their natural course. I talk to a lot of people who, in my opinion, have a cycle that's going though its natural course and should be left alone to do its thing, but my co-worker will jump in (he literally grabbed someone who was in the parking lot leaving, dragged them back in, and made them buy Stability after I told them to leave their tank alone). What do you guys think? Is there a point in the cycle that bacterial supplements are like adding a match to a fire (my opinion) or is it beneficial at any point in the cycle (and life of the aquarium, for that matter)?
