    Hi. We have been keeping and maintaining a freshwater community 5 gallon tank successfully. We are taking a big step up to a 36 gallon bow front tropical freshwater where we will be introducing a larger variety of plants, inverts and mix of bottom and mid dwellers as well as a veil beta as our primary top dweller.
    We installed the tank yesterday so have not yet introduced the fish.
    We look forward to developing an amazing tank with you all.

    Hi. Welcome to AC. The 36 looks like you just filled the tank judging from the air bubbles I see on the glass, am I correct? Are you going to cycle the tank? If so, how-fishless or fish in? There are links to the free e-book and fishless cycle in my signature if you so choose.

    Well we have already started the cycling process. I guess fishless.
    Here is exactly what we did...

    We rinsed everything.
    Put the substrate and non living items in the tank.
    Filled it with 3-4 gallons to spare. (1 gallon of water from existing tank)
    Let it sit for a while... couple hours...
    Plugged the heater and filter/circulator in
    Added water conditioner with slime coat (aqueon), enzyme start-up (JUngle), and rinsed sponge from existing tank filter in new tank water for bacteria intoduction.
    This was yesterday. Still no fish in tank.
