    mmmm, protein, and crunchy too! :D I remember when the 17 yr cicadas were last out, people were passing out recipes for them - no way, I'd eat tree bark and dirt first.

    I agree. Until the tank is cycled the water needs to be changed every day or every other day at the least.

    Just add it to the water when you do your water change. Follow the directions and treat for 5 gallons of water.

    No, you don't need to use the aqua safe still.

    Amquel can interfere with the cycling process, and also can disrupt a fully cycled tank. At least that's what I hear....I wouldn't use it. Can you get Prime? That's my favorite and doesn't disrupt the cycling process.

    If it removes everything, I guess it could starve off your bacteria, huh.

    Yeah it removes the ammonia which isn't good.
    Prime only detoxifies it, so the fish can deal with it.

    It's Seachem Prime. Petco and Petsmart usually carry it.

    Right, but go ahead and use up any aquasafe you have. It's not evil, lol. I can't find Prime by me, I'd have to order it online if I wanted it. I just use the Aquasafe.
