Hi I’m new here. But not new to reefing but, I have started a new tank and added doctor tims. I have also added live sand and fish. Has anyone tried this? Does this method still go through diatom blooms etc does anyone know . Cheers

Sorry, haven’t tried it. Prefer the shrimp method.
An educated guess based on what Dr. Timms is. I would say that you will still have a diatom bloom and the uglies as usual.

Welcome to TRT!

when you say using Dr Tim’s, you are using only the bottle bacteria and not adding the ammonia chloride , if you are going to use the ammonia chloride you don’t want to add fish until the cycle is complete and 0 ammonia is present.
The diatoms will probably still be present either during or after the cycle.
