I'm not really understanding your question. Your asking how to start CA
, some seed there tank with a rock that already is loaded with some. They scrape it into the tank and let it do it's thing. Some use chemicals like Kent's Purple Tech or Purple Up. I've used Kent's Purple Tech and got nothing. I seeded my tank with a nice rock from the LFS
, I scraped all the algae into the tank with pumps off for about 15 minutes, I'm also using Purple Up ATM and I'm seeing nice purple coloring on the rocks and spots of purple on my power heads and on the back wall of my BC29.
Also some use snails that have it on there shells. I've used that also. Some say my tank just isn't ready yet. Too clean and new maybe. It is possible to have to clean of a tank (so I'm reading)
