Hi all, a couple of a basic questions but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer for them so far.

With a new high tech setup using tropica soil, if I use seeded media in my filter can I add livestock straight away or does the tropica soil leech ammonia like the Amazonia does?

And do I need to add ferts immediately or is there enough in the soil to begin with? I'm conscious of not over doing it to begin with.

Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere.

Thanks in advance.

Bryan.

If it does I don't think it's a lot/for long. I didn't test at the start but no reading a couple of weeks in. I've seen a lot of people add livestock straight away, although you might want larger/more frequent changes at the start as a precaution.
