    hello from nz my name is jodie and i am paranoid that i am doing something wrong. This is my first time at this, so excited and want to make sure i am doing it correctly. i do not want to traumatise my almost 5 year old special needs son who is absolutely in love with fish, so here goes, brought a 70L aquaone ecostyle 61 tank. did the whole leave it for 7 days put the treatments in and on the 8th day the pet shop (animates) sold me 6 neon tetras. water went cloudy that afternoon. did a 40% water change. all good. got a new fish today brought the proper pH sorting powder where i dont have to muck around with pH up/down. put that all in, did the treatments (filter/fish) and boom water cloudy again. what am i doing wrong and is it going to cause damage tot he fish if i leave them in it for too long or is it going to kill bacteria if i do a water change again.

    Would luv some feed back please.

    Welcome to the forum

    Your tank is trying to cycle right now. That is the process of growing the needed bacteria to keep the water safe for your fish. There is a link below in my sig to a cycling with fish thread here that can help you

    You might want to start a thread in the appropriate section of the forum so you will get even more help and advice of many more members
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Unfortunately you have gotten erroneous advice on cycling. Just leaving a tank to sit there will not cycle it. Proper ways to cycle can be found in the beginner's section of the forum.

    Welcome to the AC, glad to get you.
