I'm going to cycle my 90 gal fowlr tank soon with a shrimp from the store and how do this? Just put it in and run it and wait for the spike? When should that happen?

I would get a stocking and tie it in there to make for easy removal but you got it just throw it in and let it rot

Don't hold your breath! It will take a while to seed all that rock..assuming you have a proportionate amount to your tank size..but hey my bio cube took 4 days..I've still to this day never seen nitrites in it
