Thread: Hello!

  1. Default Hello!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello! I am new to this site and to fish keeping! I hope that this place will give me some great pointers and excellent advice.

    So far I am in my first week of cycling. I am cycling with fish ( I am well aware of the big to cycle or not to cycle with fish. I went with what made most sense to me since I was once a biology major and have a great understanding about how chemicals, cells, etc work).

    So far I have two Zebra Danios in my tank. I had three but the other one was dead when I woke one morning. He had inflamed gills so I knew to do a partial water change.

    I know that you don't want to cycle a tank with fish that you're not going to keep but I intend to keep these guys. They're as ADD as I am and I think they're funny to watch.

    Anyways, everyone in my household thinks I'm crazy investing in this tank so I wanted to have some aquarium buddies to help me since I am certainly not getting that at home.

    Indeed. It is stressful. Not only to the fish but to me. I'm constantly paranoid that I'm doing something wrong. So all I've been doing is keeping it simple. Water Conditioner ( or stress coat if I feel they're in need of a therapy session), tons of partial water changes when I notice any weird behavior, and lots of patience. My parents of course are not helping with their crude remarks but oh well. That's why I came to this site. They won't help me ( one thinks I shouldn't even do water changes! Oh how cruel! So that's why I came to this site. I knew that if anyone could help it would be you guys.
