I like to cycle the tanks with the sand and lr
in all at the same time, this way if there is any die off it happens all at the same time and the cycle is started and there is no chance of another after adding more lr
What size tank..
Like stated above if you add any new uncured lr
after the first cycle you will just have another one and this will keep going on every time you add more uncured LR
. It may be shorter but you will probably have some type of spike in amm or nitrite.
so you only choice is to add either base rock or cured lr
, and getting cured lr
shipped in may even have some die off.
Why not just get all the lr
you need now and get it over with? And the small amount of lr
you added now may not have enough die off to even start a cycle.
If it was me I would get all the rock I needed now and add it all at once and then toss in a cocktail shrimp from the supermarket and get the cycle started and then sit back and ride it out.
