No lol. You crack me up sometimes. It's all good though. Shrimp cocktail like you would eat. Put it in a small media bag and hang it in the tank.
I wouldn't cycle your tank with fish. I've done fish in cycle with my freshwater but I feelers things can go wrong fast in a 29 gallon bio cube. Of course this my OWN opinion and not knocking anyone's way of doing a cycle.
Me personally.... Keep the fish for when its all cycled. No reason to but the fish through that. From here on in, I'd probably do fish less cycles on my freshwater tanks. It's ALOT of work doing a fish in. Why add more stress? Now your concentrating on your cycle and trying to keep fish alive. Not worth it IMHO
. But... People have there ways. I'm not here to judge, I'm here to offer advice based on MY experiences.
