So I have my 30gal going, for at least a week now I think, and I'm starting to get some ammonia readings (1.0ppm yesterday, no nitrites/ates). Would it be possible to speed along the cycle by adding Tetra Safe Start and a few fish and/or live plants? I read the Q&A Thread with Tetra about TSS and it seems like this would work with some small fish, but I'm not sure about plants. My plan is: -1 angel -2 GB or bolivian rams -1 dwarf gourami -6 harly rasboras -5 cory cats I'm guessing it's best to add fish from smallest to largest, so the harlies would be the first to go in, yes? As for plants, I'd like to add a sword, anubias, and java ferns. I also have some small clumps of java moss in another tank. So, would it be okay to put TSS in along with some of the starter fish AND a couple plants, or would it be better with only the fish or plants?
