is adament about not using API test kits for SW
. I post about it here (twice) and very few have had a reaction to support it or refute it. Surprising that no one else here has had the experience I have had and be able to offer advice.
I mention to my LFS
that I am fishless cycling using a cocktail shrimp and they look at me like I am from another planet. People post about it here all the time. I couldn't believe that they had never even HEARD of it before.
As a rookie it can be hard to figure out what is right in this hobby. I find both my LFS
and this site helpful. But mostly I have to listen to both and then make up my own mind and try not to lose any fish in the process.
