Cycling with a raw prawn
I have just purchased an Aqua One Nano Cube 30 tank for my betta. I wasnt able to obtain any ammonia or a shrimp to cycle so I put a raw prawn in, is this going to cycle the tank OK? I am getting an ammonia reading around 4mg/l, I put some existing media from my main tank in but the ammonia rating is still around the same value.
