Hello journal and it's readers. Today has been yet another stressful day of constant research into cycling safely and the methods in which I am to use. After reading many guides on both fishless and fish-in cycling I have come across two guides on two sites that appear to be reputable both detailing very indepth, humane methods of fish in cycling. One I am currently reading slowely! With every bit of advice I am doing ferther research.
Unfortunately, household ammonia appears to not be readily available anywhere locally. I've even searched a little ferther afield to the next city but no where there sells it either. It's not something that is used often as we tend to favour ammonia free products for cleaning. (Damn you health and safety!) so the only other cycling methods available to me are the fish food method or the fish in method. Once I've finished reading about the latter I'll begin research into fish food method. Already leaning away from it because of the smell. Smells bother me..
Little update on Mr Molly my rescue fish. He's doing well, him and Kyon seem to be getting along very well indeed. They seem to hang around together a lot. I know they won't school or anything (not that silly) but it's nice to see Kyon has a buddy ;)
