    I use glass lids. And if I'm understanding you correctly, your tank probably has two lights on it right now? Not one four foot light?
    This is what I had on my 55 pictured. http://www.thatpetplace.com/marinela...FaYWMgod43gAng

    My 55 gallon has a divider bar in the middle of the tank. Two old style hoods fit into each section of the tank so I guess I need two separate glass covers with two separate lights about 24" long

    The tank I pictured had two separate glass covers, with one 4' light. The divided bar in the middle of 55 gallon tanks is for support for the tank when it is full of water. Putting a 4' light on top of the whole thing is fine.

    Today is June 10 and I did another water test, The results are:

    Ammonia - 0 ppm

    Nitrite - 2.0 ppm

    Nitrate - 10.0 ppm

    I started the cycle on May 31. do these numbers appear reasonable for 11 days into the cycle?

    Ammonia - 0 ppm

    Nitrite - 0.0 ppm

    Nitrate - 5.0 ppm

    I started the cycle on May 31. It has been 16 days, are these numbers good to start stocking my tank?

    That would be a cycled tank! I'd dose ammonia for a couple more days to make sure but you should be ready for fish.
    20 gallon tall: empty
    29 gallon: moderately planted with 9 bloodfin tetra, 1 german blue ram, 11 glow light tetra and 1 BNP
    10 gallon QT: empty

    I put three neon tetra' sin the tank for a few days and then then went back to to the LFS and added six more neon tetra's. Two days later I found one tetra stuck to the intake opening of the Emperor 400 filter.

    I assume the tetra was sick and just did not swim so close to the intake valve and got stuck. I wouldn't think the pressure would be that strong. I tested the water and the results were:

    Ammonia - 0 ppm

    Nitrite - 0.0 ppm

    Nitrate - 0.0 ppm

    The other 8 fish are fine, do you think it would be safe to add a new fish to to the tank? not another tetra
