I just dr tims one and only. I’ve cycled my tank for a few weeks usuing stability. The back says it’s better to use the whole bottle at once. But I think it’s got more than I need for my 13.5 gallon fluval. Also I got a cleanup crew and. Says keep the light and filter off. Will that be ok for my cleanup crew or should I keep the stuff on?

I believe those instructions are for cycling a tank with no livestock. If you already have a cleanup crew in the tank they will probably be fine with no lights but you will most likely have to leave the filter on. I haven't used Dr. Tim's before so it's best to wait for replies from people who have used it. What do you have for a cleanup crew?

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
