Pros and Cons

Cons1

After 12 weeks of use, tank looks the same, worthless. All affected corals were removed from the system and eventually died. It smells like sterile water honestly.

Pros2

Found a leak in the old canister filter. Tested the water two days later and there was no ammonia and no nitrite. I use a 330 gallon ibc tote for my water changes.

The complaints about this product seem to be because users expect their aquarium to cycle in a week. Definitely recommend to accelerate the process. Only complaint is that it takes longer than expected.

Cons2

Oz bottle is way to expensive. I have no idea if it’s effective. It says so on the back in fine print!

If your nitrifying bacteria aren't in a bottle/pouch that needs to be refrigerated, they're probably just worthless dead bacteria. I switched to a different product that i know has live bacteria in it as it smells something awful.
