Don't do damsels not a good idea.


I have a idea to speed things up. Get a net and drop in a shrimp cocktail. That will help the cycle along.

Yeah I want peaceful fish. I definitely frowned when he told me I could use a damsel. I've always done fish in cycles with freshwater with success. But a 2$ guppy is different than a 10-30$ fish

That's the truth. Try the shrimp. That's how I cycled my tank. I used 2.

I'll admit I used it. I bought 2 bottles and dumped it in. I had the 2 shrimp also so not sure if it really worked or not.

Get a net, put the shrimp in the net and put it in the tank. Let it sit and decay.
