Help seeding tank

Tue Dec 31, 2019 8:33 am

Was hoping there’s someone in my area who can help me seed my 75 gallon tank. I live in the Stoughton, MA area. Any help with some gravel would be appreciated.

The nitrogen cycle is occurring where the constant water flow in your tank is, so mostly in your filter.

If your local fish store is well kept then obtaining cycled filter media from them will help alot more than gravel. You would put the cycled filter media in your filter. Because this would also run the risk of introducing disease in your tank, doing a fishless cycle is preferred.
