How to start a tropical freshwater fish tank without waiting for the water to “cycle”? This video is for you.
Using Tetra Safe Start Plus, you can introduce helpful bacteria without having to wait for your tank to cycle through the normal ammonia, nitrite, nitrate levels before putting fish in.
I explain my process with a brand new 54-gallon bow front corner aquarium, purchased from PetSmart.
The key is, good filtration, start with only a few fish, match fish to your water hardness, keep conditions stable, introduce ammonia and nitrite eating bacteria.
Never stock to tank maximum capacity. Slow and steady is the key to success and test your water frequently.
