Hello. How do I stop an ammonia spike? I wondered if I could possible add 7 Mbunas to a new tank. Thanks
Seachem Prime or Safe only detoxifies ammonia/nitrite for around 24 hours so in theory you'd need to keep re-adding the Prime/Safe, but I question whether this method would even allow the cycle to progress. IMO in your situation the better way is to keep doing large daily or every other day water changes for the next 3-4 weeks. The amount or % would depend on the tank size/bioload. For fully stocked tanks I'd do 50% daily water changes for 5-6 weeks to cycle my tanks.GuitarShark said:...but the conditioner you mentioned, could that be used to detoxify water so I could add cichlids during cycling?
