Cycling Filter?

Post by odelayheehoo » Wed May 08, 2019 10:03 am

I am planning on setting up a small betta tank in the crab room, but I am wondering how I will cycle it if I have to use pure ammonia, won't that hurt the crabs?

No, the amounts are so small that it won't have any effect on anything else. If you use the Dr. Tim's ammonia you probably won't even smell it yourself!

I knew that I would only need a few drops to produce a small amount of cycling ammonia, but was just worried of the fumes being near the crabitat anyways. Thanks, will see what I can do!
