The beneficial bacteria (biological filter) that use ammonia and nitrite produced in the aquarium require time to grow. This is called "cycling" the aquarium. During this time, which can be six weeks or longer, the fish in the aquarium are subjected to elevated concentrations of ammonia and nitrite (new tank syndrome). This is very harmful to the fish, often making them more susceptible to disease, shortening their life-span, and even causing death.
