    You would need really, really hard water as optimal pH for nitrification is generally considered to be high 7s to low 8s depending on the source. At higher pH the ammonia v ammonium equilibrium does also affect the toxicity to fish.

    what I am trying to ask is, how fast should the BB process 3-4ppm to 0ppm for it to be enough to handle the entirety of the fish I will be dropping in? a day? half a day?

    Once your tank has cycled it will be ready for the fish in their entirety. You should have enough beneficial bacteria to stock it with the fish that are able to go into a new tank. Keep in mind there are fish that need establish tanks before you add them. You need to research whether or not they can go immediately into a tank or if they need something that has been established.

    You should be processing Ammonia completely to nitrAtes in 24 hours or less at whatever your desired level is to be considered cycled.

    a little update. Life is getting in the way of keeping it cycled with higher ammonia ppm. So, being tired of an empty tank, I did a big WC, and got my 10 black skirt tetras and added them. I have some baby plants in there, hornwort and Wisteria. Now that I am adding to an established tank going forward, I wonder how many raspboras, Cory cats, or Rams I can add at once. that is whichever of those fish becomes available, how many can I add without the risk of too much of a mini cycle.

    A little reminder of my stocking :

    1. Cory cats : 5
    2. Harlequin Rasbora, black skirt tetras(already added tetras) : 10 of each
    3. 4 Bolivian Rams

    rigged up a basic twitch stream of the tank for me to watch the tank and for showing as needed. Here is the tank(should mostly be live unless I mess something up lol) with the tetras, some fake plants just to have some cover as I try to get my plants growing. You might see my floating plant, some of the grass I put down, and the wisteria I planted.

    The Twitch thing doesn't work, for me anyway

    How are the black skirts doing with the harleys and the rams?...they can be a little fin-nippy, but in larger numbers like you have, they usually will keep that to themselves, if it happens at all

    Yeah I was using my phone as the camera for twitch last night. I took it offline. But if you go to that page, you can click on "clips", and you can see my recording. So my question above was that I added the 10 tetras as it was what was available and I wanted to get fish in. I have yet to add anything else. I am wondering perhaps how many raspboras, or cory cats etc I can add at a time. I have read somewhere that typically you can add about an inch of fish per 10 gallons. maybe that equates to 4-5 raspboras, maybe 2 rams, or 5 cory cats? of course I'll watch the water carefully while adding in case I need to do a WC after adding fish in case I get a bit of a mini cycle. maybe I should also space out the additions? by a certain amt of days/weeks?


    here is a link to the feed from last night :

    https://www.twitch.tv/ushall/clip/Sp...e=7d&sort=time


    as you can see from the feed, they generally form a school. I think they do it more when I show up. probably triggered by the scary man walking around them lol. I wonder if the larger Rams and overall more fish will cause them to school more. It will be nice to see the raspboras and tetras in their own little groups swimming around the tank. Especially with the raspbora coloring.

    Lots of room in that tank, a nice big piece of DW would look great...I know your plants haven't grown in yet

    I'd have at least 10 corys, 15 harleys, and 12 or 15 BS, when done stocking, along with the rams
