Cycling a Marine Tank Using Fish Food

Postby MrMarine » 16 Dec 2013, 15:46

Do you recommend cycling a marine tank using fish food? how much per 8 gallon?
i've read an article that says that this is also a method in cycling a marine tank and is applied by most aquarists. if i do this method, how many days will the water become mature?

Many thanks

John

The best way to cycle a marine tank is with live rock. You do not need much a pound of live rock is plenty. Live rock will also speed up the curing time in most cases. If you are lucky enough to get a piece that is really well cured there maybe no cycle at all.

Using fish food is cheaper, but takes longer. it should be done cycling in about 4 weeks. I suggest you read up more about this before you start.
