Right now my 240 gallon tank is starting to cycle. I have 160 lbs of live sand and two pieces of raw shrimp encased in the toe of a line secured pantyhose. It is turning white as it decays. Question? Once the tank is cycled and the ammonia, nitrates and nitrites are zero, and all the other parameters are met, can I put in about one quarter or one third of the cleaning crew to start? Or should I add them even more slowly? Total there will be about 150 plus in the cleaning crew so I don't want to over bio-load it all at once.
Any help would be appreciated
