    Ok so here is the next question to this... How much is a little? I am going to add my media bag from the AC70 on the 55g. How much ammonia should I add?? enough to take to low levels like .25ppm or higher like 1ppm. Remember this media is cycled there fore I need to keep it alive but also grow it more.

    I would bring it up to 1ppm. I'm sure that would be more than enough for 30 cardinal tetra.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Ok so If I am understanding this correctly I will follow these steps:

    1. Raise the ammonia to 1ppm (currently it is .25ppm)
    2. Add my cycled media and wait for the ammonia to drop to 0
    3. add enough ammonia daily to raise it back to 1ppm
    4. repeat until the fishies are added


    Does this sound accurate?

    You're welcome, I look forward to seeing the tank with some cardinal tetra in it.

    It has been 24 hours since I dosed with ammonia. I am happy to report that the number has dropped! I am sitting at .25ppm this morning. Should I wait till it drops to 0 or go ahead and dose to 1ppm again?

    Personally I would not have even worried about it. 30 neons probably have the same bio-load as 5 larger tetra's and you have a lot of water there. But since you have now added ammonia, I would not add any more until you have it back to 0.

    Thanks LH!, I will wait. I am trying to grow more anyway since 30 Cardinals are just the start. I want to also add a secondary fish but have not made a decision on it yet.

    Well if you're looking for a larger fish, maybe a cichlid? A pair of group of Keyholes? Or Festivums?
