I have been dealing with tanks for a while, what is this mini cycle thing. There is no such thing. Either a tank will cycle fully are it hasnt completed yet. And when complete Ammonia will read 0 nitite will be 0 and nitrate should be under 20. THat is a complete cycle cycle so someone explain what a mini cycle is. And to properly cycle it will take 4-8 weeks.
Is that mean I still have to cycle the tank? or are you saying there won't even be a mini cycle and my tank should be already cycled as soon as I put LS and LR in? Thanks.
