Hey everybody! I am 100% newbie. On Tuesday night I purchased my very first aquarium and am extremely excited (and also intimidated!)!. I purchased the Top Fin 55 Gallon Aquarium Starter Kit. It came with the Top Fin 60 Power Filter and a 200-watt UL heater, along with two lighted hoods and some other startup goodies. I am currently doing a fishless cycle (as recommended by a friend at a local tropical fish store). He recommended that I use 30 ml of API Stress Zyme+ once a day for three days and then bring him a water sample. I just wanted to introduce myself and get some input on this cycling method and also some constructive criticism on my filter and heater. Thank you all and I look forward to making this forum a second home!!
