    Just to let you know, our Marinland Eclipse Hex5 is fully cycled now. It took two weeks of no W/C's, our betta (Stormy), Prime and TSS. So, a fish-in cycle does work, but only as stated by those that have done it........."if it's done right" and we done it right!
    I just think that people shouldn't be discouraged to do the "fish-in" cycling if done with their fish, TSS or QuickStart. I was given great advice, took it and it worked for us.

    Oops, if there's a way to do something wrong leave it to me to find it & it shows how long its been since I "conversed" in this forum. LOL. Thank you for the kind words.

    To be honest Hallyx no, I never intended to totally dis someone else's view especially someone who then claimed to look to this site for advise. I still do to concerning Betta's even with my knowledge. At the same time, the other person did not want to drop the issue either, even now. Next time I will have to try and be more diplomatic in how I add my advise so not to offend someone else. I will still be around. lol

    I can explain the hows and chemical exchange actions of those chemicals, but not really help people keep them within safe parametres. A lot of the water chemistry parts have passed me by because my own tanks aren't cycled, so my own water experience is down to simply testing and changing water each week...

    I will be as much help as I can be and answer anything people ask to the best of my ability though. I'll do some reading into it all tonight so I'm prepared. Since I'm on uni break at the moment it will be good revision.

    I didn't want to accidentally give too much info in one post- do you want me to answer those questions? Some are fairly simple to explain and are down to chemical binding points or OH exchanges, others trickier but that' s what makes them fun!

    It does but I'm no marine biologist. Really it just makes it easy for me to to absorb what people tell me and look for logic leaps in any formulas I/other people use. All biomeds are required to pass several chemistry modules in our course to graduate.

    But I do have extensive knowledge of bacterium colonies and similar :D

    Not to worry. I appreciated the feedback and made sure to send an apology before anything negative could develop.
    If you see me step out of line in future please let me know, I most certainly didnt mean it and will want to clear it up asap!
