    Welcome back. To cruel using mollies. Stability and Bioptim is much easier.

    Was thinking the same thing i read it in a book that after two weeks you can put them in to help the tank mature. I tried it once and they lived quite happily

    welcome to MASA! please dont use mollies to cycle a new tank or any livestock for that matter.its just cruel! rather let the cycle do its own thing.ore you can use a piece of (DEAD) pink prawn ore something like that to help cycle.
