Hi,

My friends told me during the cycling process of ADA soil (before adding shrimp into my tank), add little bit of tea into the tank will help to cycle the soil (take out all the tea and complete change the water after the cycle was completed).

Anyone heard of this theory??

Hmmm that's something new. By adding tea, you mean tea leaves or tea literally? :)

I am setting up a new tank using ADA soil, might just be able to try it since I will not be throwing in livestock yet.

My friends told me to add tea leave ~ Don't add too much, only around one tea spoon.
