cycling my new 45 gallon
I finally got the new(ish) 45 gallon set up. How many shrimp from the market should I add to get the cycle going? Once I do add fish (I plan on adding mollies and platies) how many times a month should I do a particle water change, and siphon the gravel? I have 2 ten gallon tanks at the moment and I siphon about 10% three times a week.
Myself, I do 50% water changes and vacuum the substrate at the same time every week. Nothing fish like better than fresh clean water. I'd think 2 to 3 shrimps should do the trick but am not positive on that. Someone else will have to chime in with that info.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
