We all want to rush into setting up a tank and one may get away with accerating a cycle in larger tanks but hardly is the case for nanos
I am not sure where you are collecting that I rushed into the tank...The tank was fully cycled and with an appropriate amount of film built on everything. I fully understand the importance of water parameters, hence my other successful shrimp tank. My water out of my Ro/Di unit comes out at 6.2-6.3, but settles at around 6.6-6.7 after being exposed to air for awhile. It was merely the floramax substrate that messed with the tank parameters.
