    I was reading a thread over on the APC forum and I saw a new tank that Jeff Senske had set up (very nice setup) but I didn't notice any fish. He said that he usually adds them around 3 to 4 weeks, sometimes a little sooner and sometimes a little later.

    The reasoning was for the tank to cycle, nutrients to stabilize and because Amano says to do it that way.

    I was just curious to know if most people set up new tanks that way and if so, why?

    I've never had any issues adding fish that same day, but then again, I use mulm....and do large water changes.......

    But Amano and Jeff do large water changes, so I see little reason not to add fish. The only difference is thicker plant growth by then, bacteria, nothing else.

    Thanks Tom,

    I thought I saw or read where you set up tanks before and added the fish the same day.
