Please help =(

I've tried asking this three times but I have yet to find the answer x3 I'm trying to cycle my ten gallon tank, but I was unable to find any raw shrimp (which is silly, seeing as I live near a coast AND went to three stores to look). Will pre-cooked shrimp still work?

sorry I don't know about pre-cooked,though frozen uncooked should be ok or just use the ammonia method.

no precooked will not swork in this case..
however you can simply put in some fish food and let it degrade .. this will take a little longer than the shrimp but it still works.. hope this helps

I used nutrafin cycle, and it doesnt do anything... nothing in a bottle does.

Anything producted as being a method for quick and easy cycling generally doesn't work.

I've been told by many that Stress Coat works very well, so I'm using that as well as a piece of pre-cooked shrimp and betta pellets. It ought to work eventually...
