I am interested in preserving as much of the life and hitchikers on my future purchase of LR
as possible. So I was wondering if it would be helpful to:
Begin cycle with my LS
, base rock, some LR
rubble for the sump (from LFS
), and a Safeway shrimp; then when the cycle is done, and my parameters are somewhat stablized, add the LR
I was hoping that if I do this, the second ammonia spike would not be as severe, and that more life would make it.
If not, ,just let me know, and I'll just dump everything in at once and let aquatic Darwinism take ahold.
As usual, thanks!
