Several raw jumbo shrimp and bacteria in a bottle. Micro bacter is what I used. I cycled my 300 and other large tanks like this and have strong bactera colonies. Do not use fish to cycle the tank.Just wondering am looking at a 950g what will I need to cycle am thinking fish but probably will not be able to catch out after wondering any predators that are hardy enough to be in cycle
You don't need to add exactly the amount of nitrifiers specified on the products. Adding less will result in less microbe to begin with, but of course they'd multiply anyways.Ok cool but the amount of bacteria that is recommended is way too expensive but will cycle with shrimp or food
Does it make a difference whether you introduce disease immediately or later? You can quarantine or not quarantine at all times.the reason we wouldn’t cycle that way elysics is because it accomplishes nothing above feed and wait. They are both equal cycling outcomes and the way mentioned in post 5 doesn’t introduce disease immediately
take all concern and focus on feeder fish here, and apply it to reading the fish disease forum on disease prep and qt
with one seven dollar bottle of bac and two cents worth of fish food, cycle is done.
What feeders do you recommend
