Fungus in Cycling Tank


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

So my new tank (and first tank) is on the butt end of its cycle (I’ve used fish food and it’s worked great for growing the BB that I need) and there’s most definitely some fungus growing on the fish food in the bottom of the tank. . . I know fungus is normal in a newly cycling tank, but my question is this: if my tank cycles before the fungus goes away, will it be okay to add my fish? (With a full water change and gravel vac, of course) It’s a five gallon that’s been running for just under a month. I’ve read that fungus usually takes care of itself in time, but I don’t want to introduce my long awaited fish into a harmful environment. . . Thanks bunches!
