    I was doing some research about the cycling process and came across this..."Run the aquarium at a high temperature, up in the low to mid eighties, Fahrenheit...The higher temperature leads to faster cycling." - Aquarium Cycling For Freshwater

    Is that true?

    "Keep the tank only about 50-65% full. This creates a waterfall effect as the water leaves the filter, and when the water from the filter hits the surface of the aquarium water, there is a great deal of water turbulence, exposing more water to more air more quickly, and leading to increased oxygenation, and thus, faster cycling." - Boy would that be annoying my ears. hah

    emersed means the tank is filled with water up to the substrate. so roots are underwater but not leaves
