Fishless cycle nearly done - how many fish to add?
It looks like I might be just a few of days from finishing my fishless cycle. I have a 10 gallon and plan to put 8-10 white cloud mountain minnows in there. My question is, if I've fully cycled, should I go ahead and fully stock the aquarium, or it is still advisable to take it slow - say, get 4-6 and see how things go, then add the remainder after a week or so?
I know you can add fish more quickly with a fishless cycle (once complete) than a cycle with fish, but I'm not sure if I should get them all at once or still spread it out a bit.
