Saltwater Aquarium Radio Podcast 002: Saltwater Aquariums and Fishless Cycling

Saltwater Aquarium Podcast

Show Notes:

In this episode of The Saltwater Aquarium Radio Podcast, I cover the benefits of fishless cycling and how to cycle your aquarium with nitrifying bacteria and ammonium chloride. These products are available at Dr. Tim’s Aquatics.

The biggest advantage to fishless cycling is that you can safely stock the aquarium without subjecting your new fish to toxic levels of ammonia or nitrite. Elevated ammonia and nitrite levels are capable of doing long-term damage to fish, invertebrates and corals. I also talk about some up coming projects and where to find more information on them.
