So I'm in the process of doing a fishless cycle of my 29 gallon tall tank. I'm at the point right now where I'm seeing my ammo down to about 3 ppm
, NitrItes rising above 1 and NitrAtes showed up a few days ago and are now at around 10.
My question is this: I have a marineland 150 HoB
filter which is rated up to 30 gallon tanks with a 150 Gph
rating. I already know I will be adding a second larger HoB
filter to move more water per hour.
Should I be trying to add this as soon as possible to it can start getting the bacteria on its media as well? Will adding this likely cause a mini-cycle in which case I need to do it before stocking?
Thank you all for the info! I've been lurking around here for weeks and you guys and gals are a GREAT source of information to a Newb like me :0
