Cleo is currently in his 1 gallon QT. while I am treating him for a fungus/bacteria, so I thought while he was in there I should go ahead and cycle his 5 gallon tank the right way, however, I have never cycled a tank before but I have read up on here a little bit, I just have a few questions.
If I went to petco or petsmart and bought one of their in-tank decorations would this count as seeding my tank with bacteria from an already established tank? Also, what are some good decent priced kits that I can check the nitrites, nitrates and ammonia with?
Would this be a good kit, or is this one better?
If there are better ones than this to use could you please show me some, I’m kind of new at this.
Would a product like “stress zyme” speed up the cycle time a little bit, has any one ever used this product?
I'm also curious if anyone could point me in the direction to a few websites that could possibly thoroughly walk me through how to do a fish food cycle on my 5 gallon tank, I want to make sure I do this right!
