ADA Amazonia ammonia spike how long??


26 Aug 2010
Hi Guys
I have just setup a new tank using ADA Amazonia, i know alot of people on here use this substrate.
Was just curious to how long individual peoples tank took to cycle using this??
I understand that every tank is different so there will be different times.

Basically just a wonder how long it took?
Tank size?
How regular W/C?

Many Thanks Toad
George is bang on, albeit if you have a mature filter to use on the tank that changes things.
I agree with George. My tank has been running for 3 weeks, with 6 l normal and 3 l powder amazonia and the nitrite came down to zero a few days ago. I've changed 50% of the water every 2-3 day.
