Thanks for your help. I am moving soon and planing on setting up a good aquarium. While tring to accomplished the nitrogen cycle, is it recomended to add hardy small fish (like zibra dineo and tetras) or is it better to just wait that the tank will cycle?
I do. I have a lot of knowlege from reading article in here. But they are some holes and unanswered questions that I wanted to know the answer to. Do you know if pet stores sell bio floss with bactiria in it? (some articles said it makes cycling faster) bus is it better?
Some LFS may give you seeded media from their tanks, but a lot of people recommend against this, as you would be introducing any disease they may have into your tank. It takes patience, but fishless cycling is really the best way. If you do get seeded media from a friend or a store, don't forget that it needs an ammonia source to keep the bacteria alive. There have been a lot of threads here recently where people put seeded material in the tank and then just leave it for a week. By then, the bacteria is dead.
