    I am putting new substrate/soil in my tank and was hoping to get some assistance in order to not expose my fish to any rising levels of ammonia from soil.

    This is a well-established 30 gallon tank that has been running for about 8 years, but I know, despite this, that I will experience a temporary mini-cycle from changing out substrate. This Im not concerned with--- it is the ammonia leeching for aquarium soil.

    My question is: Is there a way that, once I return the fish, not to expose fish to leeching of ammonia?
    Would daily water changes of 50%, for example, be enough ( *not sure for how long) to do this?

    PS. The Soil is a 9L bag of Amazonia Light.
