I've been reading through threads on seeding, but I don't see this particular question answered. Thanks in advance for any help!
The cursed (not entirely kidding) 55g is up and running now! Yay!. With all the headaches this tank has caused in the last month, that feat seems kinda miraculous in and of itself.
So... I have only 7 MTS, sand, lots of wood, Va,l and Water Lettuce in there presently.
I also have a one week old 3g tank that has a betta, a Java Fern, and Frogbit. It received some seeding material (gravel/plants) on the first day, and a rock from a friend's tank on the 7th day.
Yesterday, I put some seeding gravel from a friend in panyhose in my 55g. But now I'm wondering- since the 55g has no fish, and therefore no good source of ammonia, should I take the seed out of the 55g, put it in the 3g, then move it back to the 55g when I start to stock it? Or is it fine to leave it in the 55g for a week or so until the fish come?
I've never had this question before, I would always seed on the day I started stocking. So your thoughts and comments are welcomed and appreciated! Thank you!
