Seeding Tank For Future Mandarin Quest.

My 65gal tank is just about done with the ammonia and nitrites. In the future I want to add a Mandarin. If I start seeding the tank now will the pods be able to handle the slight ammonia and nitrite level?

Not yet they have been in a stressful stage as it is in the bottle so you want to make sure they hit it off right in the tank. You can off course try, but it is expensive for those little things

I did have plenty in 6 month in a similar tank. all i did was 2 add 1 small but ecceptionaly good live rock 2 seed the tank with MANY DIFFERENT species of pods. veriety means more niches utelised=more bulk of feed 4 the fish. the 2nd thing was 2 have absolutely no fish which may compete.
