    Sorry, I was too lazy to read the rest of the thread, but I have a suggestion. Why don't you siphon some water from your 20 gallon to replace the water in the 1.5?

    bb lives in filter not in water
    that wouldn't help
    what im wondering if that i take my bio-max from the 20 and put it in my 1.5 without disrupting my 20. i will replace the bio-max with the one in the 1.5.
    ammonia is at 1-2. somthing is causing it to spike

    I meant that if you siphoned water from your 20 gallon, and replaced the water in your 1.5, it would bring down the ammonia level.

    Water changes do not harm bacteria when done correctly. That is how we safely cycle with fish

    Keep up on the waterchanges and you won't have to worry about moving filter media
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    that doesn't do anything.
    why replace old tank water, with old tank water....you don't fix anything.

    replacing old tank water with new fresh water is how you do a pwc.

    cliff is correct

    If the situation is that urgent, I would reccomend to go ahead with the biomax from your 20

    i decided to just take the biomax from my 20 to 'pretty much" instant cycle with in a couple days. also i am going to take out a few of the stuff inside from the 20 and put it in the 1.5 which is going in to the 20. i hope that makes sense

    The members here are not lazy and have been trying to help you and why you have 58 posts in this thread. But after awhile, we would be remiss if we didn't simply give up when no one is paying attention.

    Back on January 14, I told you then you were adding way too much ammonia for a 1.5 gallon tank (as well as Andrea). You only grow the ammonia that will be needed for the fish in the tank and how many do you plan to keep in 1.5 gallons of water? You have also been told by numerous people to do a large water change and bring that ammonia down and then only add a very small dose. But the next day here's another post that your ammonia is registering 3 or 4 or 2?

    This is a flower vase, not a fish tank! You have added enough ammonia to cycle a 30 gallon.

    If you are planning to put that gourami in there for one hour, there was no need to cycle it to began with. But then, you have already had several tell you separating the gourami for one hour would not help either.

    Good idea - that will end your problem.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in
