Lexi B Posted January 6, 2021 Share Posted January 6, 2021 After learning the hard way with my first tank, I'm trying very hard to ensure my new 20gl is going to be fully cycled for it's new fish. I've never done a complete fishless cycle, and I'm trying my best to seed some filter media in my current five gal for the new tank. However, my 5gal doesn't really have the space for me to seed a while sponge filter so really I'm just letting the bio rings and intake sponge do their thing. So I don't know how long my 20 would take to be fully cycled with just those items? I'm also going to use fritz zyme to help with the process. Should I try ghost feeding and see if I get any ammonia spikes? Or just put a small bio load in gradually and hope that the bacteria colonies root fast? Sorry if anything was unclear. I'm going to start cycling the tank Friday, so I'm a bit anxious about making mistakes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
