    But I will look into the smaller fish for my tank. I feel horrible because I did online research before I bought the Danios and they told me that 10 gallons would be fine and that the fish cycle was better especially with these guys. They didn't even profit for their advice.

    I really want to keep fish and my parents are not at all supportive. If one little thing goes wrong they are so darn negative about it that they reply " SEE YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE STARTED THIS MESS!" So while I'm stuck with the Danios I'm also on the side where I have to prove my parents wrong. I'm gonna fight for my fish and give them the best care possible. I know it's not the ideal settings but I hope to make lemonade out of lemons.

    The Danios are doing fine. No problems. Been keeping up on my water changes. Today I went and got the API liquid master test kit. Snazzy little test kit. So here were my results.

    PH 7.6 ( I knew that already because if you drank my water you'd get the same calcium if you had just drank a glass of milk)

    Ammonia: .50 ppm ( Not bad considering I was expecting alot worse! Did a 50% water change right after that)

    NitrITE: 0

    Nitrate: 0

    No nitrites yet. I have ammonia though, its a step.

    ideally .25 should be when you do a 50% water change.

    So I'd say do 1 more water change to bring it down to about .125 (every 50% water change cuts the ammonia in half)

    I did another 50% water change. Is it too early to test the water? because I tested it right after and got .25%

    Or 0 >.> I can't tell the difference between the yellows... kinda hard for my eyes.

    I'd say you are fine, test again tomorrow and it should give you an idea of how fast the ammonia is building up.

    So I tested my water and these were the results I got this time around:
