I have a question about cycling. I am setting up a 20L planted tank and plan to buy one of the active filters from Angels Plus, cut it up and put it in my Aquaclear 50 filter. I know that this will not "instantly" cycle my tank, but I hope it speeds things up
I also have a bottle of ammonium chloride for my ammonia source. My question is this, how high do i raise the ammonia level to see if the "active" filter is keeping up with it? Do I raise it to like 2, then see if it has dropped to zero by the next day and nitrates are showing, or do i need to raise it even higher?
Thanks for any help
