    Thank you! Ammonia is at .5 this morning. Nitrites still between 3-4, although my husband claims its 5 cuz there is no marking for 3 or 4 on the card! hehe He likes to start trouble....

    Thank you for the article, Steeler. I think I would like to have leaves in my tank. I will continue the research for other choices. But I may order some of the IAL.

    Now, I may not be home when the ammonia hits 0, will that be a problem?

    tonight amm-0, nitrite-3-4, nitrate-10.

    And just because I've been following Bean There's journal, I decided to check my PH..( I know, I'm just looking for trouble, hunh!?) From the tank (this is the established 10ga) it was 7.6-7.8. Now that's a guess as the comparison card only goes to 7.6. Out of the faucet it looks like 7.8-8.0.

    So I dosed back to 2ppm ammonia. (back to the 45b) Now, when I have 0 amm and 0 nitrites, the tank is cycled and I do a BIG water change and plop in the fish?...not really plop...is that right?

    If I still have nitrites tomorrow, I dose back to 2ppm again? That's probably right, have to keep the new bacteria fed, don't I?

    You only dose again when your ammonia reaches 0 and only once every 24 hrs. Do not dose more than once a day..

    wow, saw a video posted by Steeler on some newer tetras. I really like the Copella Carsavennensis! And the Kitty tetra and the coffeebean. I think last time I was on TheWetSpot I saw the coffeebean listed....But I'm not quite ready! Dang!

    Oh good grief,...my stocking list is getting way out of hand. I can already see my tank isn't big enough!! hahahahahha. wait, that's not funny!

    I definitely want to round up my current stock to better schooling numbers. Sooo...

    I would have:

    9 Neon
    7 Harlequin Rasboras
    5 Peppered Corys
    5 Otos
    1 male Betta
    5 Ghost Shrimp (still debating)

    I really don't want to add to the 1 Indian Glass fish. I've read they can be aggressive if you get a spawning pair. So, he may be re-homed (is that a word?)
    I have 3 Blush Pristella that I don't know if I CAN add to since I've not seen them available anywhere.

    And also 2 Neriti snails. Do I need to increase their numbers?

    All in all its a small world of fish for the 46B....Now what I have on my wish list is as follows:

    Rummy Nose tetras!!
    Copella Carsvanenensis
    Kitty Tetra
    Emerald Eye Rasbora
    Black Neon
    Ornate Tetra
    Emperor Tetra
    And maybe Hachetfish

    Any other suggestions? Wiil these cover all areas (layers) of the tank?
