What are you referring to when you say "bottle bac"?Jedi I know it seems like a small group is wanting you to proceed to fast and burn your fish
not so. this bottle bac you are using tests out on digital ammonia machines to control ammonia immediately when its added. the extra time you have allowed is more implantation time beyond its immediate ability, that's why its not a rushed start.
if you added fish on day one, they still wouldnt be burnt, bottle bac is this good.
ask any seneye owner.
all focus goes on disease prevention, that's the key limitation of old cycling science. they have you wait 68 days for a cycle you paid to boost, no mention of fish disease, then 3/4 of the fish population is lost by month eight.
the careful, extended wait earned no fish safety.
but, starting with prepped fish on the known completion dates for boosted cycles, thats so 2021 and its ironically safer for fish than the old ways.
there isn't a documented failed cycle attempt on the whole board, not one.
but there's hundreds of new fish disease loss threads posted in the fish disease forum every week it exists. patterns tell us where to aim the concern. nearly all disease entrants followed standard cycling protocol of hard zero ammonia and nitrite earned before adding no prep fish. even though the setups seemed to be fine for the better part of a year, check out those month eights in the fish disease forum.
