I am not tired to read. THe article is very interesnting and I can see how the nitrifying bacteria is affected by pH and temperature. I can see how the PH adjustments I was doing were so harmful and I will keep in mind that I should ensure stable temperature in the winter, since bacteria lower their efficiency 50% when it is less than 80 F. Will I need a heater?.
I have a question: Is it true that you can never add too much bacteria to the fish tank?.
Regarding my tank, I am checking ammonia levels.Will I see the ammonia rise and then drop in a few days as the literature says?. Will that harm my fish in it?. How long does it take to stabilize a tank? (10 gallon with one fish). The literature says that sometimes is better to stabilize (do the cycliing of the fish tank) without the fish because fish do not resist this.
I am concerned about this. Do you have any information I can read about it, or your own experience?
