Fish Added, Start Zyme Not reccomended

Usually I would recommended a fishless cycle, boring yes, but you don't needlessly kill fish.

With the Freshwater Biobubble I decided to use Start Zyme, which supposedly adds the beneficial bacteria to the tank from the start so its safe for fish from day one, making the cycle instant.

Well one week into having fish, I notice two are unfortunately dead, I test the ammonia, and its at 2ppm NOT safe for fish. the Start Zyme effectively did nothing, tank is still cycling like normal

So save your money, kill less fish, don't use Start Zyme
