    I will be setting a new 10G for my Blue Betta and Green Neons. I ordered the glass versa- top, Current USA Satellite+ and Caribsea Torpedo Beach substrate from Fosters/Smith. I will be taking the AC20 from my 20G. I ordered an AC50 from Amazon to put in it's place. I already have an adjustable heater.

    So my first question is: The AC20 only fits a small bag of media. I have an available small bag of seeded media in my 75G that I can place in the AC20. Since this tank will only be housing one betta and 9 green neons (to start) do you think that I will need to dose with ammonia? If so, should I dose with the full required amount (per the chart) or use less?

    So basically, should you fishless cycle or not?

    Yay for a new journal and a very good question. I would think that you will be ok and have an immediate cycle. I can't recall how many neons there will be? Depending on how many neons that could be such a very small bioload. But to be sure, you could dose with ammonia. There is a chart I'll have to find a link to that says how much to dose for what size gallon tank and what % ammonia you want to end up with. I would think you would only want 1-2 % ammonia for a small bioload.

    Hopefully others with more experience than me will chime in here.

    Yes that is the question, to fishless cycle or not. It will start with 9 neons. I think what Deb suggested wouldn't hurt just to be sure the tank does get cycled. I have the calculator chart but wasn't sure if I should just go ahead and start with the full 1.2ml dose or use less since I will be placing a bag of seeded media in the AC20.

    ^^^I agree^^^ you should be good to go but you could do a small dose of ammonia and watch the parameters for a week to make sure.

    I think this is the calculator link;

    For a 10G, 1 ppm is plenty....then, follow the fishless cycle instructions to a "T", and you should be fine
