Hi guys,

New question, what supplements are good to help cycle a tank? One person told me that organic aqua b-bac is good and introduces 'seeds' for copepods...

Personally i would rather leave the tank to cycle naturally than create a chemical soup, it doesn't take long really.

Hi Highlander. I would only advise the use of supplements to boost your cycle should/if you are in an emeregency case to move livestock over to another tank or you have a tank that has broken out into a mini cycle. Otherwise be patient and wait it out. ;) You can however dose bacteria food to your system eg Organic Aqua Bbac.

We only just got clownfish, I think pods will follow soon ;)
Saw some business in the US that ONLY sells pods and DSB starter and refresher kits. You can choose the species you want or opt for the variety pack. Via courier nogal.

:( No, they don't ship to SA.
Damn beaurocracy.:nono:
