So I am setting up a 10 gallon tomorrow, or hope to, but I don't know how I am going to re-cycle it without ammonia or livestock to put in it. I have very established media ready, but I don't know how it's gonna stay cycled without any livestock. I thought of like putting a few platies from my 55 gallon in there, but I dunno. I prefer not having to get any ammonia, I'm trying to set it up and get it running ASAP.

Thanks!

I thought so. Thankfully I got some media that is established. How many platies should be able to do the job of about 20-30 shrimp?

How much? Approximately how many flakes? Any thoughts?

Feed about twice as much as you will be feeding to the shrimp. A couple of Platies would equal a couple of dozen shrimp.

I don't really feed flakes to shrimp, that's why I asked how many flakes. Got an idea?
