Thank you in advance for your help!
My friend is starting a new tank she is cycling it for a betta, and possibly a shrimp, but we have a couple questions, I am new to the aquarium community as well and she wanted to get a fish tank as well but I told it would be best to cycle it before she got a fish, so she is but we are having some trouble finding information on using NUTRAFIN cycle
, the bottle instructs to do 25ml for the first day, 5ml, for the second and 5ml for the third day. She has a 5gallon so she halved these measurements.
Our question is, what do you do after the third day? She tested the water and her levels were as follows:
Temp: 62*F (side question, is a heater required to cycle? I just noticed the lack of heater and thought that might affect the cycling process but I am not actually sure so if someone knows that would be great, she is obviously planning on getting a heater she just hasn't yet)
So to summarize, we are just wondering in a fishless cycle, using NUTRAFIN cycle
product, what do you do after the third day?
Thank you again in advance for your help! You guys rock!
