it would be good but i dont think she would do it, she already bought them and i doubt that she would take them back, and she already told everyone all about it and she wants that to be her ammonia source. i know its not rite but i know that it would jeopardize my grade and how much she likes me (not that she would but i always want to be cautious). i really would like to and i know i should but i just dont think i can cuz it would get hir p!ss3d off, she wants to create the whole "realness" of the fish in the tank making ammonia rather than an empty tank cycling its self.

I see your point. The same thing can be achieved using already dead, uncooked shrimp from the supermarket.

I think this is an awesome idea. Just make sure you do it in a way that doesn't make her look bad in front of the class.

Seems like the just process of cycling the tank (fishless, of course!) and testing each day during the cycle (along with charting the results) would teach everything there's to know about the nitrogen cycle. But hey... I'm not a teacher!

[Edit: sorry... didn't see that last post before I posted this. Guess we're all thinking along the same line! In the end, it sounds like your class will definitely get a "learning experience" on what living in a toxic waste dump will do to a living organism. If nothing else, maybe it'll teach a lesson about keeping our water clean!]

Fishless cycling makes for an easy and fun science project!

A BTA is an anemone. "Bubble Tip Anemone"
