    Hi All

    Geat website.

    Started a Boyu 550, is busy cycling for 3rd week now, only live rock and dsb in tank.
    Did a 10 percent waterchang last night only to find out that you are not suppose to.

    Does this increace the cycle?

    Thanks

    Hey and welcome to the forum. You can do a waterchange in the cycle some people prefer not to and some do. Just don't do a very large waterchange but 10% good. Maybe post some pics of the setup...

    Unfortunately the good test kits come at a price. I have preferred the Tropic Marin and Seachem brands

    Check out one of our sponsors, sure you find a deal:
