View Full Version : Bio-Spira/Tetra Safe-Start

Has anyone here used this product to "insta-cycle"? Can you please tell me how many ounces of product are needed per gallon? None of the lfs here has it and I'd need to order it online. The question is, how much do I need. Looking at insta-cycling a 350 gallon "tank".

Thanks for the help!

No such a thing as an instant cycle but the bacteria boosters help aid your fish in cycling without toxins killing them.

Bio-Spira is now Tetra SafeStart and sold on shelves. The bio-Spira that is refrigeratored is now for Saltwater.

You'll have to check out the bottle and see how many gallons one bottle will dose and buy more accordingly. Frankly, when you have that many gallons, you have a huge concentration of water and wouldn't even need a bacteria booster.
