This is more or less why I'm not a fan of needing to see 4 ppm
Ammonia in a tank in a cycle. If your tank begins to show trates, then you are good to slowly start adding fish... The bb will slowly establish as you do this. Whether or not you cycle seeing .5 ppm
or 4 ppm
of ammonia, you can't just add an entire livestock of fish into your tank... It has to be slow either way.
