Can you advise?" 21:43- 9 Fishless cycle and when to use a water conditioner. 23:12-10 "I just received a fishless cycle kit and it was really warm when I got it. Is it still ok?" 27:14- 11 I’m going to use your products to fight Dino, but I’m confused about the waste away and refresh product, there is two versions of them which you recommend? 30:33- 12 I’m on day 5 of a fishless cycle and was wondering if it would interrupt cycle if I added a small amount of dry rock to the tank at this point? 31:13- 13 A 3 week old, 210g tank, with cichlids and nitrites is about 1.0. Is your product still at work getting those nitrites converted into nitrates? 32:52- 14 "Am I able to use the one and only bacteria and nutri seawater?" 34:04- 15 Spike in numbers on Day 10 after adding live sand. Should I do a water change? 36:09- 16 Fishless cycle, with Dr.Tim's ammonia and nitrifying bacteria. After a few days my ammonia is 0 and I am not seeing any nitrates or nitrites. Am I supposed to dose with more ammonia or for nitrites to show up? I have a planted tank with gravel at the bottom. Very hard water, relatively alkaline. I've kept the temperature over 80."
