Hello guys,

With all your help and patient after 21 days my 10 gallon tank is now fully fish less cycled. My water testing is 0 ppm Ammonia, 0 ppm nitrite and 10 ppm nitrate but my ph is only 6 ppm. Is there any problem for it.:19:

Next thing I was looking for stoking my aquarium. I was looking for colorful fish maximum I want to put but I don't need to put only type of fish I want to put different type of fish.:help:

Please help me on that

I would say your tank is fine for putting fish in now. You could put maybe some neon tetras, although they are very susceptible to ich. Maybe dwarf or emerald eye rasboras

A tank of glofish might be nice and not as sensitive as neons. They may do fine with your pH as well.

I think maybe a betta and either some cardinals or rasbora.
All fish can get ich aquakid.Neons and any other fish that are not properly transported ar acclimated can get ich.

if i put 6 guppies than i can add some more fish to my tank, if yes than which one i can add

So is it 8 gallons or 10?

If its 8, 6 guppies is probably it

If 10, you could add a betta and then thats it to the 6 guppies

6 guppies almost tops out your tank. The only fish I would add to that might be otos or corys.
