    I don't presume one's curiosity based on age, nor the approachability of my answer based on the person's age. If someone is curious enough to ask for potential explanations, we should just try and...

    Sandz,

    Clear and concise does not mean one has to ignore a question. What I find most troubling from this beginner's forum is that there is a general discouragement of asking "why".

    Lady Hobbs, how do you reconcile your last comment with Mommy's? Or were you referring to another comment?

    mommy1,

    To be precise, substrate area that I refer to is the surface area on which bacteria will attach, which includes gravel, surfaces of plants, decorations, tubing, filter surfaces as well as...

    Agreed, hence it is more appropriate to discuss bacterial population in terms of density (that is, number of bacteria per substrate area).

    No one is implying that controlled experiments need to...

    Cermet,

    Can you provide us with references regarding the need for commercially available product to be refrigerated for it to be "correct".

    I'm still uncertain what "correct" means. Please...

    pckroeger, I'm very glad to hear your ammonia has finally come down to zero. Bacteria are a hardy bunch, they will work themselves out! :-)

    I'd just like to congratulate you on stating clearly...

    seabiscuit68,

    How did you arrive at the conclusion that the commercially available stock are not "the right bacteria"? Is there a specific family and species you have in mind? I would be...

    The question itself presents several a priori problems:
    1. What is the purpose of a mechanical filter in a closed system?
    2. Are you assuming no addition of elements to the system (including...

    Doesn't sound like the ammonia-oxidizing bacteria are A) doing their job or B) growing fast enough for your patience. I haven't done fishless cycling before, and I'm just learning about it. Are...

    Thanks fishmommie!

    I'll take a few months to observe the dwarf gourami behavior before adding the rainbow cichlid. I don't want to increase bioload too quickly anyway. The dwarf honey was very...

    Sandz,

    I think both experienced and beginners (i.e. me) are in agreement that the best course of action is to allow time for the ammonia-oxidizing and nitrite-oxidizing population to equilibrate...

    pckroeger,

    Hope your cycling goes well! 5ppm of nitrites may or may not be enough to inhibit ammonia oxidation. That would be another alternative hypothesis to the suboptimal nitrification. ...

    No worries, was just throwing out some thoughts. Good luck with both your aquaria!

    I merely wondered if we might be presuming too much with regard to the presence or absence of nitrifying...

    This is interesting. I'm a beginner and I haven't used the fishless cycling method myself, but have often wondered about the biology of the method. I suspect people will not be able to answer the...

    I'm sorry you have to restart your 20g tank. As a beginner myself, may I offer a different approach?

    Instead of starting over with new everything (which is quite costly, I imagine) with the...

    The API masterkit and the little faucet-attachment gravel vacuum thing made water changes and monitoring pretty easy. The neons are cardinal neon tetras (according to the owner of my lfs, they are...

    Thanks mizzoutank. So you are suggesting dwarf cichlids are, in general, incompatible with dwarf gouramis? This is contrary to the compatibility chart I've seen posted/sticky'd on this forum for...

    Good to know about your experience! I didn't realize the females are also aggressive/territorial when not spawning. My one male honey dwarf seems to be the least social (swims amongst the plants...

    Thanks, Manna, I'll definitely keep an eye on their behavior. They're behaving famously with the tetras and each other right now (the three social dwarf gouramis seem to enjoy scavenging...

    Hi, I recently started a 40g aquarium that is densely planted with driftwood in one third of the tank (the density of tall and medium height plants concentrated around the golden ratio lengthwise,...
