okay guys, i still haven't got my clown yet, but will be soon. i am going to put him in a 10 gallon qt. i have been dosing up to 4 ppm every day and today i checked my levels and the ammonia was down to .25 and nitrites were 1ppm so i'm hoping my cycle will be done soon!!! quick question: how often will i need to dose ammonia, once it is cycled? it will most likely be finished cycling a few weeks before the clown is out of qt

When u put the fish in,? there should be no ammonia,, so how long does it take to drop to 0?
Ammonia is just food for your BB till you have livestock producing ammonia?

Once cycle is complete (amm and Nitrite = 0 in 24 hrs after dosing), you can probably get by with maybe 2 ppm 2 times a week just to feed the BB. I would stop at least 3-4 days before adding the clown.

Regarding the rock structure, are there many caves? I don't see any, and fish love to be able to hide at night.

theres 3-4 little caves, should i rearrange again to make more caves? the only fish going in here are two clowns, and they will be moved to either a 32 or 75 when they get bigger
