brandon429 Posted November 2, 2021 Share Posted November 2, 2021 Hey nano-reef.com working on some 2022 cycling assemblies and I wanted to ask for helpful input along certain lines for the study Please scour the web and link back here any failed initial cycle attempts you can find. Key difference in this analysis: test kits from any source aren't the determinant, its gotta be dead animals. Show any cycle from the start of online reef logging that failed, and the initial bioload could not be carried. if you can't find a single tank wipeout cycle, then post instances where they report or show clear distressing behavior in fish or other animals vs 100% totally normal behavior. Signs of an uncycled reef tank (if you take five pounds of dry rock, put in a paint bucket of saltwater, dry sand, no bottle bac, add fish and clean up crew and feed them, all this happens in ~ 48 hours) -cloudy water -dead animals -smell the search returns need to show the physical proofs of being not ready, can't be just a test. animal behavioral changes such as all snails on back, fish darting around and never, never feeding when burned are present in bad cycle starts. Animals undergoing kidney loss or distress do not feed, they're near death (endogenous nh3 burn) so let's see the reef tank version where external nh3 noncontrol is killing or stressing the animals. Why this is needed: today's and all last 20 year's cycling paradigms are centered around consequence risk mitigation. in 2022 we're going to need to see how the consequences panned out. There's like two million searchable cycle reports, and among those, I guarantee a few folks didn't follow the rules, show their losses not their total ammonia reports. we now have thousands and thousands of fish + bottle bac cycles added on day one, with no wait, which is the #1 most dangerous harmful approach any cycle umpire will agree it burns fish. so on that continuum of harm, posted by thousands, let's see the loss end of the scale. I can find only wins, all of them. for all the years, that's a serious set of data skews so double check me Quote Link to comment
