    Any idea of what % more LR i can add to an established system with out having to cycle again?

    Also would I want to increase my water changes slighty after the first week for say 6 weeks?

    It will go into a mini cycle, but nothing serious

    MagMan - as Sean said - you will most likely have a mini-cycle.... a tiny ammonia/nitrite spike. BUT, in an established system, and mature system, the bacteria should be able to handle this mini-cycle with ease...
