Thanks for the reply. All good ideas, and I'll definitely pick up one of those.
Coincidentally, right after I wrote that first post, I walked by the tank, and there was the shrimp, perched...

I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 guppies in it, and a few months ago I added a bamboo shrimp. I'll admit I didn't do the homework I should have before adding the shrimp... I just saw him at...

Interesting point about the filter. It came in a kit with the 10 gallon tank, so I imagine that's what they think its rated for. Flow looks plenty strong to me, actually blew the fish around a bit...

This test kit - I forget the brand, I'm not home - has strips that test the other levels on one strip, then a separate set of strips that just test ammonia. You dip a water sample into a test tube...

LadyHobbs, thanks for those links.* The fishless cycle article is what brought me here in the first place, good stuff, thanks.
Dizzy, that's my concern exactly.* Maybe it was 2 days before...

First of all, fantastic forum here! I found it a few days ago and have been reading like crazy. Thanks to all who share their knowledge and experience on here!
Now, here's my deal: I...
