ok after much anticipation i am finaly getting my 8ft 240 gallon tank. i will transfering loaches from 3 tanks to make the SUPER loach motel. a few questions tho: what kind of ammonia should i use to start the cycle? i will probably seed the filter with a small amount of bio media and start adding ammonia for a few weeks but what fish should i add first? i have 25 rasoras and 15 austrilain rainbows that i will probably start with. beyond that i have 7 clowns, 6 striata, 6 rostrata, 5 yoyos, 10 kubatai ,2 skunks, an 11 inch gibby pleco and maybe 20ish various sand loaches.
i really want the tank to be well established so i dont stress anybody out too badly
