Hi everyone :)
I made this video to document and teach people about the fishless cycle. If you dont already know what that is, it is a form of cycling, and instead of using a couple "hardy" fish, you use ammonia. Fish produce waste which is then turned into ammonia which is deadly to fish, bacteria eats the ammonia and turns it into nitrITES, which are also deadly. NitrITES are then turned into nitrATES which are still deadly to fish, but only in large amounts. Bacically using the fishless cycle you skip having the fish produce waste to create ammonia, you just add ammonia yourself. This speeds up the proccess of cycling your tank and also is nicer to the fish. Its very simple, if you didn't quite get it on the video, heres a step by step guide: http://www.wikihow.com/Do-a-Fishless-... If you want to learn more about it juse search "fishless cycle" on google and there are many links that will come up. You will need ammonia (can be tricky to find, i got mine at Food Basics), test kits (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate), good to have filter material or gravel form established tank. I really believe this is a better, faster and more humane way to cycle your tank, and an added bonus, when your tank is completely cycled you will have a larger bacteria colony then cycling it with fish and you will be able to add more fish at once right away! Thanks for watching my video, hope more people will try this now!

community tank or cichlid tank? Any info and comments are appreatiated :)
