I just got my 15 gallon nano running, and I am trying to decide how I will cycle it. For my FW
tanks, I always just use old filter media to seed the new tanks, so I don't really have experience with a fishless cycle. I had planned on putting a raw shrimp in the nano to cycle it, but I am now considering the pure ammonia method because the tank is in my bedroom!
My question is, is the raw shrimp method so disgusting that you can smell it outside the tank? I have to sleep in there, you know.
Also, I've never cycled with pure ammonia- does anyone have a link that can tell me the right amount to put in the tank? I don't particularly care for guesswork. Thanks!
