Note to self: now its only temporary I don't need to do anything fancy......In fact I will not let this forum and all you lot with your lovely aqua-scapes, influence this tank as its only temporary accommodation!!
Shouldn't your tank be pretty much cycled by now? If I remember right, the DSM cycles the substrate as your plants grow out?
Any die off when you flooded it?
You are probably right about cycling, but i want to play safe. However i just put 3 fishes in there, and will see if they survive, i will put 10-12 more next week.
No die off so far. I think it's too early for that.
