I do not want to rush into filling my tank only to find out later that it never cycled completed and level are a mess to keep in check.
Having said that, I have seen many people in this forum choose sides on
"No-Fish" cycling and Hardy species/Shrimp cycling.
I was planning on doing a staged approach and want you guys/gals input on it...
Stage 1 would be no fish for 2-3 weeks. monitor levels
Stage 2 Would be Shrimp or cleaning crew type species another 2 weeks
Stage 3 would be Dams/Clowns (2-3 total fish either species)
Then run it for about 4-5 months like that. And progress to inverts for existing fish.
Feel free to flame...
