new 5 gal nano cycling and substrate questions
starting up my 5 gal, and just looking for some opinions. on the cycling for my seed bacteria, should i use a filter cartridge from my 55gal? a piece of wood from my 10gal? or gravel in a stocking from my 10 gal?
also for 5 gals, what r the main plants you all are going with? and what thickness should my sand be? i so far have 1 5lb bag in there, this enough?
ill be going out today to find hardscape, and once its ready for fish, im thinking of adding a dwarf puffer, and shrimp? or will the puffer make a meal ou of them?
any other opinions on some uncommon fish for a nano? just bouncing some ideas around.
