[APD] Scientific, Controlled Study on Effectiveness of Inoculation

While searching for something totally unrelated I came across an article 
outlining a study of the effectiveness of adding bacteria to aquariums 
to speed up the nitrification cycle. The analysis of ammonia, nitrites, 
and nitrates were not done with our crummy hobbyist test kits either, 
but with a spectrophotometer. As it turns out, the product tested did 
contain live nitrifying bacteria. It seems to have aided nitrification 
in the experiment somewhat.
