Has anyone used nitrifying bacteria to cycle there new tank? Im starting my with dry rock its also a barebottom tand so I wont be useing sand. Not much surface area for the bacteria to stick to. I bought a bottle of Fritz Turbo Start. I was just curious if anyone else has tried this product. Also if anyone has used nitrifying bacteria, was it a fish or fishless cycle? I would prefer fishless and will need some Ammonia chloride. Any feedback on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Ayo
I will eventually add an Apex system but for now I rigged my MP40 and Radion Power blocks to back off the stand. They are just Velcroed so if I have to move them it can be done fairly easily. I hope this works to save Room for my Apex in my stand.... Let me know what you guys think about this. I love a clean look.
I chose to go with dry Reef Saver rock.. Its cost effectiveness plus I love the way looks. My next project is to aqua scape. Also set up a BRS RO/DI. After talking to my city water company, I found out that they treat our water with chloramines. So of course i got a 5 stage with 3 carbon blocks.
