I have bought a 20lt fishtank 3 days ago and have added some substrate, various plants a filter and an LED light, it has been filled and I have used water conditioner. Everything is fine and I have not had any bacteria blooms. I have not had the opportunity to do any changes since I was out for these last 2 days. I Have bought fish food and Tetra easy balance (I had bought a small container of biodigest bacteria but managed to crack it..) to start the fishless cycle. Im waiting on my test strips to arrive (Not precise but I dont have much money to spend) And the aquarium shop guy got me a bit confused when he told me that I had to add extra bacteria every water change and add more tetra water balance? Is the bacteria not supposed to grow on the filter media and occasionally washed with aquarium water? Should I buy another flask of bacteria or will the fish flakes work?
