    Hi Guys,

    I'm pretty new to this game having recently purchased a 20-gallon tank. I just wanted to get some advice here; since I've read a lot of conflicting views online as to whether I should cycle a tank with our without fish.

    What are peoples thoughts on this? I haven't made the fabled mistake of already buying the fish before I've set up.

    Any nuggets of advice would be massively appreciated.

    Thanks so much,
    Robin

    Welcome to the AC.

    Fishless cycling is easier on you, and less stressful for your fish, but it takes time and patience.

    I'd advise fishless cycling over fish-in cycling, every time.

    See here for pertinent info, and post questions if you have any: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...ead.php?t=5640
