Tip of the Day – 5/19/2011


Do not cycle your aquarium with fish, regardless of how hardy the fish may be. A new aquarium with freshly shipped live rock will have plenty of decaying organic matter to start the nitrogen cycle. The decaying organic matter will be broken down into ammonia and eventually nitrite, which are both toxic to any living organism in the tank. The best solution is to be patient and not rush things, as rushing will lead to issues with your livestock in the long run.
