I have my ten gallon cycling and I'm stopping at Petsmart, so I might get a little betta I want to try to save one of them, but my ammonia was still around .75 - 1 ppm (kind of a mint green). If I dose Prime, could I consider a half fish in/half out cycle? Would that work?
I understand. That's why I'm holding off getting shrimp until it is cycled. I just want to either get a betta out of those community tanks where their fins are getting nipped, or out of that stupid cup.
