    I recently completed a fishless cycle and added 7 green tiger barbs 2 days ago. I'm monitoring the ammonia and it's been 0, with all of them schooling, eating and looking great. I feel I've built the bb strong enough to handle the bioload, which is very understocked for a 29gal, but still want to watch for a mini cycle. How soon could a mini cycle come on? Not sure if there's a definitive answer to this, just curious

    If you're feeding them you should've seen one by now.

    I'd like to add 3 more in the near future. Should I add them sooner rather than later?
