this might serve better if it were posted in the appropriate section. I suggest asking a moderator to relocate the thread.
The answer to your question is, That depends on wether you plan to fishless cycle or not.
you can add a few damsels to speed along the process, but have fun trying to get them out afterwards. Some damsel species get quite aggressive.
if you wish to fishless cycle, you must wait until your ammonia and nitrite have spiked and returned to 0. Once those are at 0, you will start to see your nitrates increase. that is the time to begin adding fish. Be sure to research all species you plan to add for compatibility issues. plan to add more territorial species later and the docile species first.
thks yea i think i will do the no fish way i could throw a few damselsa in but wont they just die or will they make it threw the spike ??? where to move it i will ask
you may not want to cycle with damsels. they are rather aggressive fish and may be hard to catch them when the cycle is done.
what is a good fish to use i was told black mollys are great fish to use , they are salt and fresh water fish
