I was looking for suggestions on how to keep a newly fishless cycled tank’s bacteria fed for a couple of days while I’m away. Throw some food in there? Dose higher ammonia? It’s a 5gallon tank. Thanks

Some flakes should keep it going fine, though if its just a couple days it would probably be okay as is.

It’ll be fine for a couple of days. Flakes would take longer than that to break down...

I guess what I’ll do is dose 1ml of ammonia before I leave today and it should be ok on Sunday night.
