Cycling my new tank
So in a couple of weeks I will be setting up my new planted tank. A 54 g corner bowfront. I have a fluval 304 I think or 303 canister filter that is running on my 30g tank right now and will have been running for a good 3 or 4 weeks by the time it goes on the 54g. My question is, do you expect to have a large cycle spike of ammonia and nitrites when the tank is set up? I will have eco complete gravel, the filter that is seeded, plus all the plants from the 30g (packed full of wisteria, java fern and hygro) as well as some african wood that has been soaking for 3 weeks now. Do you think it will be safe to put a few of my fish into the tank right away? Will adding carbon to my filter to help with the tannins affect my cycle at all??
