Reference to cycling tanks[edit]

Hi (again) Cat, I have a 100L (22 Gallon) tank and I cycled it with 3 platys. They are not that sensitive to ammonia as far as I am aware, they just are not as good at coping with it as other fish (e.g. barbs). I think that as long as the tank is not too small or there is not more than a third of the recommended stocking capability then they should be fine because the concentration of it will not be too high.

I think we should possibly leave the description as is, i actively encourage fishless cycling anyway, it's easier and causes less stress and long-term damage to any fish. --Cat 07:43, 25 March 2008 (CDT)

I agree about fishless cycling...this was a while ago, before I really knew what i was doing. Could we, however, make sure this conversation is left on the discussion page so that people can make up their own minds after reading it? (Adam2307 12:05, 25 March 2008 (CDT))
