Nitrogen Cycle (will it happen)
I recently bought a 2nd hand aquarium with most of the bits including living rock and sand! Both were lef in some water but the lights, pump, skimmer etc were switched off for about 2 weeks. Some of you may remember this story from my previous post!
I have now been running the tank for almost 2 weeks with 6 white mollies and all seems to be well. The water parameters seem perfect and no sign of a 'nitrogen cycle' happeneing. As the live rock and sand wer already cured and i kept some of the old water i am lead to believe i may not have a cycle?
Recently added a filter sock and removed old filter sponges that were dirty and uneeded.
I want to add a couple of clowns to the tank and a small clean up crew but am hesitant as im worried the nitrite and/or ammonia will spike.
