Cleanup After Cycle
Finally my cycle has completed an i would like to add a fish or two tomorrow, but first i have a couple of questions.
1. I cycled with fish food, and haven't done a water change since i started really. I know i should do one and get all the gross fish food off the bottom and gravel, but i know that the bacteria will die without an ammonia source. Would i be all right to do a large water change this evening, and get fish around mid-day tomorrow, or do a big water change tomorrow morning, the same day that i get the fish.
2. I know there is a fair amount of bacteria in the gravel, so would it be safe to do a decent gravel vac before i get the fish?
