I'm a new hatched SW
"hobbist" (only starting). I have this question about cycling the main tank. Do i do any water changes to the main tank while its cycling? my main tank currently is at .75ppm for NH4
and .5ppm for NO2
... would water change reduce the bacteria population in the main tank?
Another question is regarding the quarantine tank, since i'm having 1 clown fish and some 20+ cleaning crews in the main tank...
so i want to move all of them into a temporary quarantine tank until the main tank is fully cycled. But am i doing the right thing, if i use the water from the main tank first, and everytime i do a 25% water change i use the saltwater i bought from LFS
? or how should i do this right?
thank you all for the inputs!!
