Growing enough bacteria to accommodate a stocked tank

dmk164

ive tried tims and ive tried turbo boost 700 by fritz and start out at 4 ppm ammonia and when my numbers are 0,0 i add another 4 ppm i do this repeadidly 6 or 7 times and everytime my order of wholesale fish come in i slowly introduce food and the nitrite always go out of control and i end up loosing them
any help?

How many fish are you introducing?

The trick is to add a small amount of fish at a time to reduce the chance of a minicycle. If you do get one you have to do extra water changes any time the ammonia or nitrates combined get near 1.

Add whatever amount of food you'll be feeding your fish. Or at least a rough estimate.

But I agree with slowly, it gives it a better chance of being able to go and stay safe.
