It  will  just  be  8  weeks  since  the  koi  tank  setup,  dont  want  to  disturb  the  cycle  that  has  been  set  up  there,  just  dont  want  to  upset  anything  in  that  tank.
 I  also  love  fishes,  all  fishes,  thats  why  using  sera  nitrivec
 I  will  try  and  get  the  test  kits  today.                

 
 Taking  out  some  water  from  koi  tank  won't  upset  the  cycling  process  in  that  tank.  As  it  is  by  now,  you  must  have  started  regular  WC  to  the  Koi  tank.  So  take  the  water  which  you  were  going  to  throw  anyway  and  add  it  to  the  present  tank.  Thats  it.  
 
 Anyways  if  you  already  have  branded  bacteria  in  a  bottle,  go  ahead  with  it.
 
 As  far  as  nitrifying  bacteria  are  concerned,  they  double  up  every  24  hours  the  colony  multiplies  faster  when  ammonia  is  in  excess  and  starts  dying  when  ammonia  is  almost  zero.  What  we  achieve  in  our  tanks  is  an  equilibrium  of  bacterial  colony  so  that  any  ammonia  if  produced  is  quickly  consumed  by  these  bacteria.  So  even  if  you  take  out  some  water  from  the  koi  tank,  the  equilibrium  shifts  and  bacterial  colony  starts  multiplying  fast  to  reach  equilibrium  again.  Typical  for  a  healthy  tank.  So  we  do  not  harm  the  colony  when  we  do  WC.
 
 I  hope  I  am  able  to  explain  my  point  over  here.

 @deepakarora
 Please  post  a  single  reply  with  all  your  thoughts  ,gets  a  bit  confusing  Chuckle  
 
 Anyway,you  can  always  use  mollies,some  people  also  use  them  to  cycle  brackish  water  tanks.it  is  a  very  hardy  fish.Or  if  your  lfs  is  short  of  mollies  ,  you  should  wait  for  him  to  get  back  in  stock  Razz  ,he  doesnt  have  guppies  and  danios  too  right?

 Sorry  Guys,  was  having  fever,  was  not  able  to  update  you  guys.
 
 I  added  10  Zebras  in  the  tank,  in  last  4-5  days  they  are  doing  fine.
 
 @ashwin,  he  got  both  mollies  and  zebras  a  day  later.  I  got  10  1  inch  zebras.

 Dont  know  how  this  thread  went  unnoticed.
 
 I  would  suggest  members  to  get  the  basics  before  you  give  out  suggestions.  Let  alone  rubbish  someone  elses  statements.
 
 There  is  a  term  called  'Fishless  cycling'  and  it  can  be  done  without  fishes.  If  one  has  little  patience,  its  pretty  simple.  Both  VIdyasagar  and  saurabh  suggested  the  right  way  of  doing  things.
 
 Im  really  not  sure  the  kick  start  cultures  work  properly  (They  might,  but  im  skeptical).  Im  not  sure  what  conditions  the  starter  kit  would  have  undergone  from  production  till  it  reaches  the  customer.  Im  really  not  sure  what  amount  of  bacterial  colony  survives  by  the  time  one  adds  it  into  the  tank.  I  would  rather  go  for  'fishless  cycling'.
