Ammonia Kick Start #1
Hi

I am a scientist and can get my hands on some clinical grade ammonia. So if i was to set up a new tank would it help to start the cycle if i placed in a small amount of ammonia, to activate the nitrifying bacteria.

Also when setting up a new (bigger tank) what do you think would be the best thing to transfer to the new tank to help implant the nitrifying bacteria and start the cycle of.

Re: Ammonia Kick Start #3
Cheers Goldy thats a great help, how do you find this stuff on the net.

I has taken me 2 weeks to find this website, because all i find is how good the goldfish card is and not the wee fish that live in a tank.

Re: Ammonia Kick Start #6
Hi

I know, the goldfish card stuff is a bit of a joke, no matter what i type in if it has a Gold and Fish in the line i will get the card stuff.

Heres a wee quiz what type of fish is it on the card.

You never know i might get a goldfish card it sounds good. lol
