Shoot after 8 months of reading this forum you'd think I would have gotten it right
Here's what I was thinking though:
Buy buying cured LR
I'm starting with a pretty good seed of bacteria which should be enough to support the bioload of 1 fish since every time you increase the bioload you go through a mini cycle. I was thinking of adding that 1st fish directly to the main tank. The reason for this is that although most people are against cycling with fish, that is exactly what I would be doing if I add it to the QT
tank without even any seed at all...seems like that is much worse for the fish than the chance to having a parasite. Then a few weeks before I buy my second fish, I'll add some bio-balls to the main tank and use them to seed the QT
to make for a quick QT
cycle. Would I become unpopular if I did that or does that sound like a decent theory?
