I have never experienced doing a fish-less cycle. Since I have started my 40b, I had procrastinated for over a couple weeks if I were going to do fish-in or fish-less. Well as you all see, I decided to do without the fish. I currently have a 55g with fish that has been going through its cycling phase, so I rather do the frequent water changes to that tank without adding more labor work as of right now. Okay here is the beginning of my new experience....If someone sees I am doing something wrong
(not indifferent) please inform me of your suggestions/advice....I want this to be a great experience because I have a 20g waiting on me after I am done getting the 55g and now the 40b cycled
At 6:15 a.m. I added 5ml to tank, waited 15 minutes, then ran ammonia test, results were close to 4.0 ppm
, @ 6:35 I added 1ml, waited 15 more minutes, retest at 6:55, results were 4.0 ppm
(note: originally I was suppose to add 6.06ml).
