what are the best CHEAP fish to cycle with? i need something hardy and cheap im going to lfs today in about a hr Money
what size of tank are you cycling? a common pleco only costs me £0.99 but they get massive. neon tetras are about £1.00 each, tiger barbs roughly £1.50 each, it really depends on what kind of fish you want to keep, if you cycle properly the fish you use shouldn't have any trouble during the cycling stage.
not trying to put my high dollar fish that i want through a cycle its a 55gal click on my aquariums tab and you will see details neons are way to sensitive to go through a cycle common plecos get way to big and barbs are notorious fin nippers. after the cycle im gunna take the fish out and rehome them maybe feeder guppies?
yes twister is right. zebra danios are petsmart were $0.77!
I was just there :)
However using seachem cycle, can save you all the hassle :)
Its the bacteria your tank needs to cycle in a bottle.
well ended up getting fish in here today ill have to keep a eye out for that seachem stuff
tahnks for all the recommendations guys, turned out Africans are pretty durable, nto to mention i only got 4 of them and have some live plants and a 55 shouldnt be a problem cyclin the tank. Money
Good to hear. Nothing worse than having a danio(s) swimming around when a danio(s) was never part of your final stocking plan.
Minnows! :D Drop them off in a fish pond when you're done with them.
