EON Instructional Video Series! “Part 2: Cycling Your EON”

Part 2: Cycling Your EON Opening sequence.

“So now you’ve unpacked your new EON jellyfish system as explained in part one of this series— Whoa whoa, hold your horses there, partner! Your tank isn’t ready for animals yet! Your system has to cycle first! Cycling is one of the most important steps in the whole process.”

“No, no, no. NITROGEN cycling.”

“Your system needs to establish stable nitrogen levels in the water! Establishing a stable community of helpful bacteria in your tank is essential to the health of both your system and your jellies.”

“All you need is:

  • bacteria source,
  • saltwater test kit, and
  • ammonia source (in this case, shrimp)”

“First, place a pea-sized piece of the shrimp on the top of your mechanical filter pad underneath the drip tray.”

“Give your bacteria a good shake and pour about 3 ounces down the filter box and let the cycling begin!”

“This is where your test kit comes in handy. You’ll need to check your water chemistry every week to monitor your system’s progress. Hmm… maybe this would be more helpful in color. Ah, that’s better. After one week, there won’t be much of a change.”

“By week two, we should see a spike in ammonia.”

“During the third week we see the ammonia start to fall while the nitrite begins to spike.”

“And finally after about four weeks your system’s bacteria have eaten up all the ammonia and nitrite.”

“So, congratulations! Your tank is ready for jellies.”
