You mean you are trying to speed up the cycle by seeding the tank? There has to be some ammonia in the tank for the BB to eat so maybe put some fish food into the tank and take readings until the ammonia builds, then put in the seeded media.

yes you are correct.sorry i couldnt think at the time i posted this and wasnt able to come up with the correct words ;) and im glad u mentioned about the ammonia.i had forgot.i was just worried about any chlorine or chemicals in the water.and bypassed ammonia..i just fount a leak in the tank.so i just tore it down and will do some sealing with my silicon.then try again..luckily i didnt start the cycle or anything....

thank you for the reply and reminding me also i need ammonia first :)

it was a tank i fount outside.some1 threw away a 20 gallon hex.it had a crack on it.i took it and sealed it up with another piece of glass.but wonder if the seems are bad.the leak seem to come from the opposite of where i patched it up..

my red 1 has a black pen stripe around her fins.cant see in the pictures.but i love it..she goes great with her tank. :)
