Do you have to do weekly water changes in a tank that is being cycled? There are no fish in it yet....

IF there are no fish I do not think you have to. I'm not sure though, there is a sticky somewhere...

Not sure, you wouldn't be endangering anything, though too much ammonia or anything else can stall the cycle.

Not while the tank is cycling. Once it is cycled, do one big change to cut the nitrates. Then just add a few drops of ammonia every day to keep the bacteria fed until you add stock.

Can I use API stress coat as a regular conditioner or just for short amounts of time?

i just found out my 2nd 1g milk jug to hold IAL water is leaking. thankfully there was only residual water in it as its empty. the jug is going to be tossed and the 3rd one i have will now be used to replace the broken 1g jug for the IAL. before the 3rd jug was just for normal water to hold water for any water change. i probably have a jug that my parents have recently tossed out to replace the one for genearal WC use. what do i need to do to sanitize the new 1g jug? i'll be getting a 5th one in a week or so to replace the current 1g IAL jug that will need to be replaced soon.

Are there any plants that don't create plant matter in the tank? I've had a huge serious plant matter mess when I introduced Phillipine Fern into my tank.

Do you drop one pellet in at a time or the whole meals worth at once?

One at a time. :)
It's mostly roots, leaves and when I put in an indian almond leaf it really breaks up and gets leaf parts all over my tank.

I've had many snails die before too, and I have no idea why that is o_O
