So using mineralized soil there's not a requirement to add ammonia? I've never cycled this way, or any way other than adding fish, or inverts in salt tanks, to begin a cycle. Still trying to wrap my hands around when I will have had a cycle in a planted tank if the plants take up the ammonia before "normal" nitrification cycle can begin. At what point will I know I can add fish, or more fish? Thanks for the info? Sorry to hijack with these questions. Tell me to go away if you like.
