I think the issue is alot of us start this hobby by going to our lfs and their methods are the fish cycle. Had I known i could simply do it with a piece of raw shrimp I would have saved the money. Unfortunately like most i joined online forums a bit to late.

Yea, if it wasn't such a pain, doing a 10% daily pwc is probably the best thing you can do for your livestock.

With fish in tank for cycling that 10% a day pac is also a good idea.

Good luck with the tank.
