New method of fishless cycling

Every so often we see someone ask if they can use their own pee to cycle their tank.

We've got an fx6 for it.

What the???? LOL! Is there an Agent in your tank?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Very difficult to stock around her... The pool will open soon( only across the parking lot ) but that's not the same as a tank in your living room to swim in haha

I think you need a bigger filter. There's something floating in your tank

We have an fx6 and an XP4 for it, and I'm pretty sure I can rework my filters to put a 304 sunsun on it as well if need be. That's a WHOLE LOT of media.....
