Thanks for the warm welcome. I actually have to wait for my decorations to ship from Amazon before I start the fishless cycle. After reading all the pros and cons of fishless vs. traditional cycling I decided on fishless because it seemed a little more foolproof as well as sparing some little fishies lives. If you guys wanna see pictures I'll try to figure out how to put together a thread for it, kinda new to the forum world so bear with me. Like I said I am running a 20 gallon and I want to put a few live plants, 4-5 cardinal or neon tetras, a dwarf gourami and a couple otto catfish. I like how the cardinal tetras have more red than neon's but I hear cardinals are harder to keep, anyone have any thoughts on that?

I was under the impression I had to have everything set in order before I started the cycle but what your saying does make sense. I'm gonna start my cycle tonight then...once I find a place that sells the good ammonia.

the bacteria lives in the substrate on surfaces(decor) and in the filter cartridge but a majority is in the filter and substrate. and you could also go the raw shrimp method. try acehardware alot of guys n gals on here have found pure ammo at ace
