So you are not going to wait for the beneficial bacteria to start working and have the filter be seeded by them and risk a crash?
So you lied about the way you setup this tank just to wind people up? Seems like a silly thing to do after yesterday's moderator drama
can some please point out why you cant add fish in the same day special blend, stability(is that not why they have products like that?)
Mastermamo, you cannot expect people to take you seriously after playing a joke llike this?
I was actually looking forward to someone taking the test to see if using products like special blend and the likes can really allow you to add fish (especially discus) on the first day. Granted I would never suggest this but everyone is entitled to their own methods and ideas.
We almost all know that adding fish to a tank with a seeded filter and water from another tank can allow you to do this.
So, it seems it was all to get a reaction from members which I don't think sends the right message.
Well good for u. I've heard of this working but never known anyone who has done this.
I have done this in an emergency but it's not recommended as the bacteria takes long time to seed the filter even with bacteria in a bottle, if you stop feeding prior to moving and after the move for a few day's and then slowly start feeding again.
If you get a ammonia spike you are going to stress your fish or loose fish.
If you are willing to test your theories at the expense of your fish expect some negative comments.
+1, this should not be some sort of challenge or 'point to prove' game at the expense of good fish.
Yeah I did that at the start lost a lot of fish and even more money. Learned my lessons and moved on.
