    I lived overseas for a few years and knew people who owned tanks and those families apparently had at least one family member who knew how to maintain their tank because they always looked nice and...

    Agree with this - there are people who change very little of their water weekly (like 10%) and if the nitrates are too high, that amount won't help. It's possible your water is fine, but higher...

    Eventually, you will see 0's for ammonia and nitrites and a high # for nitrates. At that point, you will do a large water change to get the nitrates down. And you will continue to add ammonia until...

    Yes - the ammonia gets added once it drops to 0, otherwise the cycling can't continue.

    Agree with the others - before you look into eels, its important to ensure your tank is not overstocked (based upon potential size of ADULT fish)- adding an eel IMO is not a great idea.

    +1 to Slap on the weight issue. Also, is the dresser on a floor or carpet? If carpet, the tank might not be level once water is added which isn't good for the tank.

    You can not place a time limit on cycling - when ammonia and nitrites are both 0 you are cycled - it is then up to you to maintain nitrates at 20ppm or lower via water changes.

    Even if your tap water shows a low reading for ammonia, the beneficial bacteria you are growing in your filter will eventually "eat" that ammonia too along with what your fish produce.
