How Many Fish Can I Add Using Seachem Stability

Can you add too much Seachem Stability?

API quota exceeded. You can make 500 requests per day.

How often should I add Seachem Stability?

Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days.

How long does it take to cycle a tank with Seachem Stability?

It still took 2-3 weeks to fully cycle. The directions say there’s no need to add more stability after seven days, but I kept adding the maintenance dose daily until cycling was complete. Be sure to keep testing your water if you have livestock in the aquarium, and don’t just assume all is well after seven days.

Can you add fish immediately with stability?

With Stability you can add fish the same day and keep adding Stability everyday for 7 days.

Does stability help cycle a tank?

“Cycling” is the process of growing good bacteria colonies in a tank which consume toxic fish waste and convert it into less toxic forms. The process of cycling a tank can take anywhere from 1-3 months, but can be hurried along by using bacteria supplements like Stability®.

How do I know if my tank is cycled?

After testing your aquarium water for ammonia and nitrite and nitrate, if the reading shows 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and some nitrates then your fish tank is cycled. Cycling a new tank usually takes between four to six weeks.

How long should I let my tank cycle before adding fish?

Wait until both the ammonia and nitrite levels have risen and then fallen to zero before adding more fish. It usually take about 3-6 weeks for a new aquarium to go through the initial nitrogen cycle, so fish should be added only a few per week during this time.

Does Seachem Stability remove nitrates?

Yes, I meant nitrates, not nitrites. The bottle does say that it helps reduce ammonia, nitrites and nitrates, but I originally ignored it, as everything I know “in theory” says that you can get rid of nitrates only through water changes or use by plants!

Does Seachem Stability need to be refrigerated?

The bacteria in Stability® are alive but not active. They exist in a spore form. They can withstand extreme temperatures and do not require food to survive.

Does algae mean my tank is cycled?

At some point in the process, you’ll notice the beginnings of life in your sterile tank, in the form of an algae bloom. This is a sign that the cycle is nearing completion – there are enough nitrates in the tank to support algae.
