What all do I need to do with the 20g. to grow the needed bacteria? How do I do the fishless cycle in the right way. I have tryed the do the cycle with fish in the 90g but cant get it to grow.I have a bottle of hy-top clear ammonia. As far as I can tell in has nothing in it just pure stuff. I shake ot nothing happens. would this be ok to use and how much shold I add to the 20g T?
I think this is the first time I have responded to a post by you, so I'll start by welcoming you to TFK forum.
The products mentioned are bacterial supplements, but you still need a source of ammonia to make use of them. Some people use fish foods, some shrimp, some pure ammonia. If the latter it must be just pure ammonia; I've no idea what the named product is.
I have never done the above, since I always have live plants and these avoid "cycling" as such.
