The last time I did a fishless cycle I put 3 sponge filters and 2 70g HOB filters on a 10 gallon seeded tank. When the ammonia started dropping it dropped FAST

It makes things soo much easier when you do! But it's okay. When you want to start a new tank after your first you will have all the seeded media you can handle

not advice either but i was at my local county fair today and they had about 50 hermit crabs in a 10 g 100 goldfish in a 20 and a bunch of glofish in a half filled 5 gallon fluval spec with white trim!!!! i cant believe they had glofish. goldfish were if you made one ping pong ball in the cup, hermits were if you made 3 and glofish were if you made 5 out of 5 throws

My friend caught a sand shark and put it in a 75g bowfront. I told him its way to big for his tank, that it needs to swim in order so get oxygen.
