Fresh Water Cycle

  1. Day 23: 10 Gal FW with acclimated Tetra and Rasbora: FINAL BLOG for this tank cycle

    As this will be a final blog on the actual cycle and acclimation of this fish I've got to give a shout out to SlappyHappy7, Compass, and Mommy1 and Cliff (and anybody else that had input) for all their help getting this tank cycled.

    I considered myself a novice with aquariums before I found this site, but an experienced novice. I've had many tanks over the years, some with great success and some with epic failures. It wasn't until I actually decided to use the internet and research ...

  3. Day 22: 10 Gal FW with acclimated Tetra and Rasbora

    Did a water change about 50% - I drained the water down to about the gravel level to add some darker substrate (black rocks) and removed the shinier glass rocks to mimic more of a natural habitat.
    I replaced 5 gallons with fresh dechlorinated water and topped off the last 5 gallons with the original aquarium water.

    Once water change has stabilized and the fish are re-acclimated, I'll probably be clsosing out this cycle log.

    Same results for Nitrates. ZERO. but the fish are still doing well and going at it.
    I'll test again this evening and do a water change on tomorrow.
