New tank cycling time, with or without plants
 
Yah, me again.

I don't want to know what to expect for cycling times, I am curious what others have seen in their cycling and testing.

I'd like some data if that would be OK.

Size of tank:
Cycling method used:
Live plants yes or no:
Ammonia levels seen:
Days to nitrite spike:
Nitrite levels seen:
Days to nitrite zero:
Time between ammonia being stopped and fish being added:
Any problems with fish that related to cycling issues or unusual test results afterwards:

That's all. Provide what you can or what you will.

Thanks.

Jeff.

hey JDM love what you are doing here

here mine


Size of tank:= 100L / 150L / 350L / few 40L's /50L's
Cycling method used:= slow introduction of fish at abouts 1.5 - 2"
Live plants yes or no:= yes always plants added 3 days before fish is a must
Ammonia levels seen:= none
Days to nitrite spike:= none
Nitrite levels seen:= never
Days to nitrite zero:= always
Time between ammonia being stopped and fish being added:= N/A
Any problems with fish that related to cycling issues or unusual test results afterwards: i feed a normal amount or the cycle takes lots longer

I forgot one bit,

days to nitrate appearance

... but if others respond, they might not see this so I'll have to do without it I guess.

i think that this question would be all but useless with out know the approx total length of fish in the tank and then to work a ratio out of fish size and tank volume

for example i have a 350L with 58 inch of fish so a ratio of 6:1 (6 liter to 1" of fish)

but to answer you question i only notice very minimal amount bearly measurable by liquid test kits after approx 10 months because of they types of plants i keep

i will draw you up a form later if i get time where it would be multiple choise using radio buttons etc that way we can get some actually stats

I know, I just figure the less info asked for the more likely I might get it... and the minimum is fine for an initial study. In the end I don't think that fish inches are a factor in what I am looking for either, the different between methods used are more important as fish should NEVER create as much steady ammonia as the pure ammonia method. If it does then the fish are doomed anyway. I thought of doing multiple choice but wasn't sure what numbers to use for the choices.

If you do that, it would be great.

its the most vital question to ask tho

one extra question of

what is the total length of fish in your tank approx ?

this is vital to ask as if person A uses method A but has only 5"of fish to a 100 liters
and
person B uses method B but has 25" of fish to a litre

this would mean you can not compear these studies but if you have the info to work out the fish to water ratio you can then go on to work out the ratio for polution for both methods which would mean you can compear them

i think more will answer if they know the results will be more viable and worth while let me have a look at drawing up a form to do it all for us it will make it very easy for ppl to fill out
