I forgot to tell you guys this story...
But last time I was at Big Al's picking up some Java moss and a piece of driftwood to set up my 5 gallon tank, I asked the girl who was helping me if they had anything they could give me that I could seed my tank with. She looked confused. I told her it was for cycling, but again, she looked confused.
I explained that I was setting up a new 5 gallon tank and I was wondering if they could give me some gravel, or a piece of filter media, or anything that could help me establish a cycle.
She lead me to the front and showed me those tubes that claim to have bacteria that can instantly cycle your tank or whatnot, though people here generally agree that it doesn't work.
Anyway, she showed me that and was telling me about how it instantly sets up a biological cycle in the tank, so I can add the fish the next day.
Then she told me that when I did my water change EVERY MONTH OR SO, I should add some more.
