I have bought a new 60 gal.My question is it's been so long since Ive started a tank and was wondering how long after I have the filters going,air pump and tank filled do I have to wait to introduce fish into their new home?
I've been reading up on this and from what I've read you should give it at least 3 days
The most important part is the "nitrogen cycle". Many ways to go about it. Easiest way is to introduce 1/2 small hardy fish and use a test kit to know when it's established . Google the procedure will give you tons of info ,besides you will also need info on comtatiblity" issues lol gary
is this a fresh or salt water tank? For fresh you can add fish straight away...for salt you have to wait a few weeks..starting off with coral and live rock..once the live rock goes alittle purple (that ,means its healthy) then slowly add fish. A couple every two weeks or so...
