Dr tims one and only has the necessary bacteria for an instant cycle...
Even with Dr Tims my tank took 17days, sped up from the normal cycle...maybe, but far from an instantly cycled aquarium
Does anyone actually think that if they had massive die off in the tanks they setup, that they would still be in business let alone have a client base? I mean, they do show them visiting tanks they've setup in the past, right?
Jeesh, internet detective experts!!!
Most of their tanks get broken down and sold on ebay lol. Do you really think a tank built into a skateboard ramp is a good idea?
The telephone tank made it to eBay.
Please define most!
Well here's the reality of THEIR products. I can't speak for all on the market. When I met Brett at RAP this last year we had this exact discussion, he claimed that this product is how a large portion of public aquariums get their systems running. In other words, they use the formulation that has supposedly been used by these public aquariums. All I can say is, IME this is completely false. A straight up lie. Has anyone else seen the equipment used for public aquariums? The breeding rooms for their own food for these animals. The huge quarantine systems. The super strict, unbelievable process of procuring these animals for public aquarium displays.
The do NOT simply build a system, dump in a chemical, and go to town. That is simply a misrepresentation. The same thing applies to our reefs, and to the reefs that they build. There is no magic bean. No substitute for the way nature intended the nitrogen cycle to work.
Just my opinion.
They sell this stuff at petco now,they were setting up a display for it yesterday when i was in there. I dont believe it. In all honestly its a TV show, for all we know, when they reveal the tank to the customer, its weeks later.
What do breeding rooms, quarantine systems and procuring the animals have to do with adding bacteria to a tank?
i just watched this video, and Dr. tims also says that they use the bacteria in a bottle in public displays.
