Fish in Cycling
I have 6-8 VERY young angels likely getting shipped to me next Monday. I WAS fishless cycling the 75 gal and I had sent hubby to get fetch the 20 gal from storage. Well, hubby broke the 20 gal.
As of this morning, the salvina is my 75 appears to have soaked up 1ppm ammonia. The tank had 4ppm ammonia yesterday and this morning appears to have 3ppm. I'm getting a bushel of anacharis tonight. I PRAY that will take advantage of the ammonia currently in the tank overnight.
Right now I have a tall 6.5 gal bucket, a short 3 gal bucket and a large leaking kritter keeper(in the process of getting fixed. I am likely going to have to fish in cycle this 75. I really DON'T want to do this. But being that I have no choice. The babies would have to sit in something else while that cycles anyhow, possibly getting exposed to their own ammonia and getting daily water changes.
I'm hoping the plants will pick up anything that will harm the babes. Any advice to make this fish in cycle the least impact on these babies?
