Cycling myths with nanos (less that 3 gallons)
I've read and heard from a bunch of sources that on ANY tank
under 3 gallons, it's not possible to cycle it.
One has to do 100% weekly water changes to keep water parameters in check.
(with fish livestock, even small ones)
Is this true, or not?
Obviously this is refering to a planted nano
w/ a filter.
With all the nanos I see here, and seeing
what some people are doing for water changes on them
(50-70%, or none at all)
I am really curious what kind of water parameters you see on those tanks,
(ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) and if there are recurring spikes in Nitrite and ammonia,
even after the tank is established.
I guess the main issue would be the size of the fish,
and it's waste production.
Lets say on a 1 gallon tank,
with a light fish load (is there a stocking rule for nanos,
like an inch of fish per gallon?)
I just was very curious about your experiences...
