I have to raise the pH in my 2 gallon jar to get the cycle going :/ I have a whole cuttlebone in my 66 gallon tank and it's perfect. How much should I put in 2 gallon jar? I have it planted and plan to add 3-5 shrimp when it's cycled.

Thank you

I could if I had that available to me. Unfortunately, I live in rural Newfoundland and it's not easy for me to just go get something I might need My parents picked up the cuttlebones for me when they were out of town last. Ordering things online takes way too long

Thank you

It helped my 66 gallon so much! The pH went to 7.2 from 6 and the nitrogen cycle finished in about 2 days after stalling for more than a month.

The jar is going to get a big overhaul today. Hopefully it'll be shrimp ready in a few weeks.
