Smile About cycling--help

Hey everyone.

Some of you know that I send out a PM to members looking for help on how to do a fish-in cycle.

You know, I swoop into the thread, gush that I can help, etc. etc. (Hah!)

I've recently converted a newly updated version of that pm to my betta site, while I work on a more formal guide.

As of now, it's a simple outline in simple language, none of that craziness where you need a chemistry degree to understand.

I will still swoop in and offer the PM about cycling, but here is the link to my page about it:

http://bettasplendid.weebly.com/cycl...r-dummies.html

(No, this isnt a shameless publicity grab, lol, quit that.)


If anyone thinks its worth it, I might post this in the forum and allow it to float about for a while.

Im nervous, though, because cycling is one of those things that people get confused about and need help with, which in a big ol' post, I cant really give like I can in a PM.

Oh well. Look if you want, if it helps or is good, let me know. If you think its worth threading, lemmie know.

Very nice, Alyssa, except you made a typo. lol You were talking about ammonia in the beginning of the article and you meant to say the fish can't get away from it. Instead you said they CAN get away from it.

Crud!! Thanks, DQ :D Haha, it always helps having a second pair of eyes read it.

I'll go fix that!

Would you consider it worth posting in habitats? :O
