Hi all, I am brand new to the planted tank hobby and I am looking for some advice. I had a tank years ago, but just recently decided to get back into it. I was just wondering what is the best way to cycle a new planted tank? My LFS said to do a fish-in cycle, but after doing some of my own research I'm leaning towards the fishless cycle. Any recommendations?
Also my set up is:
15-gallon tall tank
75 W Eheim Jager heater
Aquaclear 30 filter
Finnex fugeray lighting
and Eco complete as the substrate with seachem root tabs
My current plants are:
and dwarf hair grass coming later this week along with some java ferns
If I do the fishless cycle is it still the standard dosing of Ammonia? The tank has been successfully running for about 2 days and figured I should get to cycling since it all seems good. Thanks!
