Trying to do a fishless cycle. I have been to 5 grocery stores, walmart, canadian tire, and home depot and could only find sudsy ammonia. Aquarium's West doesn't carry it.
I bought a new tank and want to transfer my freshwater puffers into the new one. I want to change the substrate from the one in their current tank because it's not ideal for a planted tank.
If I put in the new substrate, with the old gravel in a nylon sock, and all the rest of the decorations and plants that already have the necessary bacteria, and put the old filter material into the new filter, do you think I will need to do anything else to cycle at all? I don't want to have to go and buy another heater so would like to be able to transfer them as quickly as possible but obviously don't want to hurt them to much either.
