I moved all of my existing filter media and substrate over and also kept the same decorations, then kept an eye on the parameters using NT Labs Aquarium Water Mini Test (it tests for ammonia, nitrite and pH).How did you cycle the tank, originally?
What kind of test kit are you using?
If the tank was indeed cycled, there's no need for the SafeStart
I’ve always used the SafeStart with every water change because it’s works for me. The period of time I stopped using it I had a huge ammonia spike (this was a couple of years ago with my first ever Betta - the one who lived for a good couple of years after that).
