Hello everyone. I'm very new to the hobby, me and my daughter got our first tank about three weeks ago. I have a 20gal high tank, and we currently have 3 Green barbs, 3 Tiger barbs, and two salt and pepper catfish in the tank.

I'm having some issues getting the tank cycled, I know I've overloaded the tank with fish, so I'm playing catchup. I ordered two sponges from angelsfish yesterday to help speed up the tank cycle process.

I have had to take one of the fish back, a tiger barb, who was being a bully to all the other fish in the tank. As for his replacement, shes doing pretty good so far. Shes still finding her place in the school, but the overall hostilities in the tank have greatly decreased, and a few of the other fish are no longer stressed out.
