Hello Dear Fish People... It's me again, the clueless one So, as some of you may know from my previous threads, we are currently cycling the 65G fish tank that will eventually be a discus playground. The tank was filled with water last Tuesday and fish (11 zebra danios) was added on Wednesday. The plants were in over the next two days. Currently there are two java ferns, three tall anubiases, one anubais berteri, one sword plant, three bunches of spiralis, dwarf grass, dwarf baby tears (not doing so hot)... So after a week of all that in the tank there is no ammonia... So since plants consume ammonia - does this mean that the tank will never cycle? I read that in planted tanks people bypass cycling all together and just start adding fish after a month or so. However, since adding more fish would potentially add more ammonia than the plants consume wouldn't that kill the fish? Considering that we are planning on keeping discus, who are supposedly very sensitive to bad water conditions - I find this all very confusing.
