I'm really pissed off that I have been on this forum for months, and have mentioned my stocking plan many times, and have not received negative responses besides once, and nobody has ever said "don't...

Three weeks later... I went ahead and went through with my plan after a week of more research and consideration. I picked up 5 green tiger barbs yesterday evening.
They seem to be settling in...

I know, I'm not putting anything else in the tank besides maybe a single BN pleco.

Okay, well now I have to get my car fixed today so I will have to just treat them this first time if necessary, but soon as I get my next check I'll buy a small quarantine setup.
If I add some...

Perfect! :) For the PH I will follow your advice, thanks to you both!
I'll update when I have them home, which will probably be Friday.

Everything is staying stable. Nitrites keep hitting 0 quickly and nitrates are staying between 5 and 10. Tomorrow I will do a PWC, watch it for two more days, adjust PH (if needed.) And then pray my...
For the glands, just a monthly/bi monthly groomer visit will help them. My dog gets a bath, trim, ear cleaning, gland cleaning, nail dremel, and pad trim every other month and he is much...

Wow... this afternoons water parameters: Nitrites show 0 clearly and Nitrates are between 5 and 10.
Think it is basically cycled, I'll have to watch it closely the next few days!
11-04-2012, 02:28 AM
Both Nitrates and Nitrites have dropped a little bit...

Yep I have read it a few times, even did before posting this, but I am always worried I'm going to f- it up. So I printed out hte other one since it was so detailed.
This is a scary process since...

Ah, okay. I copied the steps from this website, it says fishless cycle so I dunno: http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/fishless_cycle.php

Am= 0 NitrITE= 5 NitrATE= 20

I don't like not having exact instructions lol.
I redosed AM half of the initial dose, and it hit 0 three days later. I redosed for the second time last night, and 14 hours later, AM is 0 already.
I had my first fish, a betta, at 8 years old and enjoyed it very much. However; Since I was so young, I ended up killing both of them I bought from illness that is easy to get which I didn't know...

Just bought some Corkscrew Val. on Aquabid thumbs2:
Just wanted two grass like plants for behind my driftwood. Hope it arrives in good shape.
I hope everybody's fish stay okay, and the losses are minimal. I have family over in Philadelphia, and will be thinking about everybody over on the East :/
Also, PLEASE keep your other animals...

I am not sure what I want for my next one, one step at a time :). But depending on how this turns out, I may just go for marine next. Maybe when I have my own place in a few years.

Sure seems like they can be pretty nasty to other species, huh. At least when you decide to get another tank you already know what to get!

I am on the 12th day of cycling my first *properly set up* aquarium. Last night, after AM reading 0 for 2 days, I re-dosed up to 1ppm.
Upon many hours of research on fish, and, well, continuing...

I'm excited that it is cycling properly thus far. It's not that bad waiting for it to cycle, really : ) giving me time to add things and research stuff I may still need.
Ah, I see. Yeah, good you got it out before something bad happened! You would think they'd be extra cautious manufacturing stuff like this.
10-27-2012, 05:37 AM
Much appreciated! I'm glad it has started well, I'll pay close attention to what I do.
10-27-2012, 01:50 AM
This was actually before I moved it, now all of the leaves are out of the water so it doesn't rot.
10-27-2012, 01:04 AM
Thanks! I also was a bit worried in case maybe it wasn't algae and something bad instead.
Oh dang, you must have gotten a bad one! My Aqueon Pro works well, but it does fluctuate a lot between ready temp. and adjusting temp. even though my heater grate (or whatever it is) is always shut...
