    Whats the suggestion, when running the nitrogen cycle do uu all do water changes, or wait unitl the cycle is complete. I know everyone has a diffrent way of doing things, so Im curious.

    For me it depends on whether there are fish in the tank or not. If there are fish in the tank then yes I would do water changes otherwise no I would not. Is this confusing ?

    not confusing at all. I cycle my tanks fishless of course, but I do not do water changes until the cycle is over.

    With a fish-in cycle I would do water changes daily. With a fishless cycle I wouldn't do water changes unless one of my parameters were off the charts and then I would only do enough to get that parameter to a readable level. With TSS I wouldn't do a water change until a week after a successful cycle to allow the cycle to stabilize. If after day 10 with TSS my tank is still not cycled I would do the daily water change method for a fish-in cycle.
