That is a way better way to spell Riffle rather than Rifle. Yes it is named because it comes from Riffles in creeks.

Rill-ee is how I say it now I am waiting to be corrected

Subwassertang ask a German on that one because its German, I am German blood but no speaka da German.

Tomato, Tomarto it's all the same to me as long as I know what it means. What matters is that they don't say rilli but sell me a red cherry instead, now that would suck!

Oh no!!! "THE HOFF" has spoken. The rilleee's have it. Once the HOFF has spoken its conversation over....

Unless.... Mr. Norris gets involved.

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
