    Look at java fern, java moss, amazon swords, many of the crypts are easy beginner plants
    @Boundava and @Angelcraze are 2 of our plant gurus, they could help more than me

    Espeis would do better than harleys, IMO, with a 20 tall, they're pretty much identical, but the espeis are smaller

    Also look at false (green) neons, ember tetras, and some of the smaller barbs and rasboras

    I'm a huge fan of the rummy nose tetras, but they need alot of lateral swimming room, not sure they'd have enough in a 20T

    A single pearl gourami may work, nut I like the suggestion of the honeys, that stay a bit smaller

    Depending on what fish you finally decide on, you could keep shrimp and a snail or two, also

    You can order plants online, as well, lots of vendors out there

    Here's a little beginner package I started out with for my 40B

    Day 8, still no nitrites. Hopefully they show up soon!

    I use a really expensive filter in our furnace here that is supposed to filter very well, I wonder if our air in the house here is just really clean and there isn't much bacteria floating around?

    Just let her go for now

    Some have had faster cycle success by introducing BB colonized media from an established tank to a new tank

    You could ask for a bit of cycled media from an LFS, but the unknowns are too great for me to even consider...who knows what else is in those tanks?...pathogens, maybe?...more than likely?...probably?...who knows

    If you had a fellow aquarist nearby, who has some safe, colonized media, much better

    The good news is, when you set up your next tank, you'll have trusty, established media to borrow from

    Will do.

    My lfs is kind of dirty or I would ask them.

    What is the longest you guys have ever seen for nitrites to show? Just curious.

    I usually see them within 8-10 days, sometimes quicker

    How about your ammonia level?...what PPM did you start with, and what does it measure now?

    I started with 2ppm and it still tests at that level.

    Seems that my cycle is just taking a while to start.
