1.When doing the ammonia cycle am i able to put decorations in the tank when doing the cycle?
2.As in plants, or sand? I'm new to the cycle, getting a hang of it but still on the edge of learning.
3. And why do i have to change the water 75-85%? Doesn't that take out the beneficial bacteria?
4. Also how long does this take to get the beneficial bacteria to stay?
5.If i have a tank that is 3 gallons can i take some decorations or rocks out and put into the 10 gallon to help it? Or would that be worse?
6. Also what's good nitrates? or nitrate? or ammonia? Or too much of anything is bad?
Sorry for the questions but i'm just having some trouble..
