Thread: Ammonia/nitrite sensitivity

  1. #1

    Default Ammonia/nitrite sensitivity

    My set-up is complete and I am ready to add FBT. How sensitivite are they to ammonia, nitrites and nitrates? The water portion of my tank is not cycled and I am wondering if I need to cycle it before adding the FBT. I know they don't breath with gills like fish but are they still sensitive to ammonia nitrite?

    What method to you use to cycle your FBT tank?

    As far as I'm aware you dont really need to worry about cycling a tank for FBT's. I never cycled mine and I have 6 happy and healthy toads. As long as your water is declorinated and its running thru a filter in your tank you should be good to go.

    Yeah, no need to cycle. But I do highly recommend a filter because fire belly toads are messy little boogers. They are very Hardy though.

    The water has cleared up. I added a few aquatic plant to the wet portion and I "seeded" the water with some gravel from my freshwater fish tank. I am still gonna wait a few more days to be sure everything is good before I add the toads.

    Glad to hear you solved it. You could also consider a permanent ammonia gas detector.
