Sometimes Technology & Science sends us backwards. This is coming from a guy who repairs computers for a living.

Did you read the 2 posts above from Dave66? That is what I have been talking about. Years ago, no Cycling was needed. It was not just being lucky. "Water companies switched to Chloromine instead of...

I guess after 9 long pages, people became tired with this post. ;-)

Just some pictures. Sorry if there are too many. I'm excited. Again, Tank is not set up yet.

Well I try to follow this in life also. I know Drugs & All Medications have side effects & will kill you in the end. So I try to take as little as I have to. Getting on & up in age, which you may not...

I did not use it. By late last night water was clear. I just hate using unnecessary chemicals.

The Black Sand which came with this Packet is "Carib Sea Super Naturals Premium Aquarium Substrate".
The White Sand which came with No Package is "Stoney River Premium Aquarium Sand".

Ok. Back from Fish store a couple hours ago.
Bought Black & White Sand. Have never used Sand before. So I put in a bucket and after like 30 times of mixing & emptying, it got clearer but still very...

Boy those 2 Black Neons are happy with their new Real Estate! ;-)

SueD, Thank you.
My plan is to keep these 2 guys in here until I get Fish in a couple of days,
Then take these 2 guys out, put them back in their old home,
then buy Gravel & Fish & put the...

So this morning I tested & the Tank is Cycled. All looks good.
So I did a WC almost 100% thinking that today I would buy fish.
But life happens & I could not get to the fish store.
I may not be...

Thanks for the sound advice SueD. I may just get 2 Angels after hearing that. Decrease my chances of having a Pair. My luck, I'll get a pair.
I don't know how good I will be at breeding. Not really...

Thanks for the vote of confidence my friend. My other 20 gallon that is my 1st tank. It has Neons, Corys, Cherry Barbs. All nice fish, but in my heart of hearts, I love Cichlids. Not the real...

I'm not sure I want to disclose the fish I am picking for this tank. I'm afraid I will be scolded & looked down upon, being the tank is too small. (Only 29 Gallons). But my ultimate plan is to...

It was a lot easier back in the day when I would let the tank water sit for 2 days then put the Fish in. That's what I call easy.
Cycling is a long & tedious Science Project to me. Don't think I...

Ok slaphappy7. You da' man!
04-07-2015, 07:18 PM
Should I do the 75% WC before before adding the Ammonia or wait & do the WC last?
04-07-2015, 05:27 PM
Ok it's April 7th & I'm Cycled. Took 20 Days.
Now tonight all I have to do is a huge 75% Water Change & I can buy Fish.
I still need this Question...

Here is a Test from 10 Minutes ago
04-07-2015, 12:55 AM
OK. But like I said, it looked more to 0ppm in person. The camera made it look faded. But anyway, no worries. I will definitely make sure it matches perfectly before putting any fish in. Thanks for...
04-06-2015, 01:47 AM
I added just a wee more than that.
But before I put Fish in, the Ammonia will be 0ppm, Nitrites 0ppm. My Nitrates will probably be high.
So I will do a 50% Water Change. Test Nitrates & make sure...
04-06-2015, 01:21 AM
Update April 5th
I think I may do just add a bit more Ammonia, just to be on the safe side.
Why do you guys think?
But it's definitely Cycled. The colors in Photos...
04-02-2015, 02:59 PM
Yes Sir! Fully Understood. Thanks for the quick reply!
04-02-2015, 02:51 PM
Cycling Update April 2nd
Ammonia: 0ppm (Took 3 Days after 2nd Dose was Added)
So here is the Question: Do I wait for Nitrites to go to 0ppm also?
Or do I put a...
03-30-2015, 04:48 PM
Update March 30
Ammonia 0ppm (Took 10 Days)
Nitrites Between .50 ppm & 1ppm
Added 2nd Dose of Ammonia 1ml.
