Thanks guy. They are taking to the veggies really well.
I'm noticing some unusual behavior over the last 24 hours or so though. I have two shrimps.. one is noticably larger than the other. The...
I've read on the web it's good to feed some vegetables to your shrimps. Does this apply to any shrimp? I have two amanos.
Anything you have to do to prepare it? Cutting? No seasoning I presume...
I will look into upgrading the filter. The tank is 24x12x16. That is "high" but seems like a standard tank size?
Are Juli or Panda cories too big?
I have a 20G high with a stock Aqueon quietflow 20 filter. Thanks.
I have another thread about stocking else where but I thought I would visit the cory experts for my cory "inCORY" thumbs2:
Tank is cycled, only have some neons in there right now. Probably going...
Thanks, ryann. Having only one school sounds like a good idea. It should help reduce the bioload a bit and provide more variety visually.
The apistogramma looks gorgeous! They will get along...
After six weeks... no ammonia and nitrites! Other stats:
tank size: 20G high
filter: Aqueon 20 filter
7 neon tetras in there at the moment. Would like to get atleast a...
Did another test today.. Nitrite spiked to a pretty intense purple, maybe 2ppm? Still no nitrates.
I did another water change. I wonder if I am overfeeding.. I have been feeding daily and using...
Checked again.... ammonia is between .25-.5 and we have nitrite! Looks to be between .25-.5 as well. Nitrates isn't quite the 0 shade but doesn't look like the next level either. Assume it's still...
Made the water change and the waiting goes on!
I noticed the new behaviors with the four neon tetras - wondering if this is common to new tanks or a neon thing... before they would school together...
Thanks for the info, 850R.
Shame I lost a month of waiting but atleast the 4 guys are looking a little bigger and healthy.
Ammonia is up to .5ppm - water change time?
No nitrites or nitrates yet. Why is it taking so long.. it'll be one month in a few days since I put in the fishes and bacteria. The 4 little neons...
Got my kit! That was a long wait......
So, pH is good.
Ammonia is .25, nitrites is 0 and nitrates is 0 so I guess I am still in early cycles... being my first reading, I don't know if the...
Thanks for the help.
Test kit is here.. can't wait to test!!
Also, any plant suggestions such a tank?
I think I am settling on a South American setup. #s are +/- 1.
5 hatchetfish as top (haven't seen these live but they read cool, I will check them out the next time I am at the LFS)
THanks for all your helps!
I am patiently waiting for the test kit to come. Not much to do but wait.
The cloudiness has mostly gone away after almost 2 days although it's still not perfectly...
How much water and how often?
I have a new tank that's cycling with fish. How often and how much can you do a water change?
I've heard not to change more than 50% of your tank's water but...
It's been over a week and they seem to be doing okay.
I did use a bacteria booster before I put them and I've done two water changes over the last 10 days or so. Are you suggesting I increase the...
I have a stock light that comes in one of those aquarium kits so I don't think I can use a number of plants. Also, my substrate is half gravel, half sand so I am limited there as well. I am...
Cherry and amano both look nice.
I am so excited but want to do this right. I am sitting tight and having fun planning while the test kit gets here. I am also thinking more about plants.
Thanks for the help, guys. The test kit should be here in a couple days.
I am rethinking what to stock but I do like the look of the Harlequin rasboras. Cories also sound like fun but seems like...
This is a great community and I'm very happy already about choosing to enter this hobby.
I am currently cycling with four neons, about one week in. My test kit is being delivered and I...
I will take the fish out - do I need to change the fish-swum water to do a cycle?
I'm going to get a test kit today.
I just got a 20G tank with heater, filter. I gave it a day to get the temperature right and then the next day, put some 15 minnows/feeder goldfish to see how things would go.
Now, after reading...
