I also had the idea of p!ssing in a tank to get it cycling
:laughlong: Yeah probably not the best idea.

My take on this is that it is all a function of risk. I know people that have just thrown their P's into tanks that have only been running for a day or two. To be exact I know 2. One persons P's went on to become really big and successfull. The other person's P's were all dead within a week.


So the question is. You can cut corners, think you know what you are doing, and try it the easy way, but the risk of you losing a fish (and some money) is a lot greater if you dont take the necessary precautions that practically everyone agrees to.

This is not a "sugar in the tank" idea. EVERYONE agrees that you should cycle the tank. A fifth grader could even tell me the chemical transformations that take place in the tank to make it healthy for fish.

Take the 2 weeks or a month to cycle the tank. I am sure, for 50% of you (by my own scientific statistical evaluation :rockin: ) that it will save you some money and frustration.
