midway through fishless cycling...
I've been doing a fishless cycle for the past two weeks and it seems to be going well. However, I was doing some more reading at work today and it seems to be a popular opinion that if you are planning to have a heavily planted tank, you can start stocking with fish pretty quickly.
So my question is, if you were me, would you keep going with the fishless cycle and adding ammonia or start introducing fish?
my tank info:
29g with fluorite sand substrate
Finnex FugeRay Planted+ LED
Marineland C-160 canister filter
ammonia = 2ppm
nitrite = 2ppm (just started appearing 5/13)
nitrate = 0ppm
I don't plan on having a heavily planted tank, maybe just up to 50%.
Thanks for any input!
