Found a site that sells actual live bacteria in sponge filte

Post by LilGreenPuffer »

This site sells a REAL instant cycling product - sponge filters straight from their own tanks.

Finally, someone's getting it right!
"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

That is good, but unless you picked them up and zipped straight back to put them in your tank they are probably not much good as the bacteria would die if it took a couple of days to reach you. Also if they are running loads of filters on each tank they will only hold enough bacteria for a percentage of a stocked tank. Great idea needs work though
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Probably good for seeding a system.

Nah, a couple days in a breather bag will be fine. I ship old filter media free to anyone who needs it, and it works great.

Yeah, their tanks would probably have to only have a few each or be heavily stocked.

Wow, that's good news for when the time comes for me to move. I've made up my mind about moving back to the area I come from. When I find a new house (which can take years, to be honest), I will be moving 80 metric miles - 12 hours of driving. I didn't think filter bacteria could survive that long, but if it does, that would be great.
