    Thank you :) Also, I have not bought any more fish, like you said. I'm just keeping an eye out on the few I have and testing/water changes until tank is fully cycled. Which by the way is confusing the heck out of me because I've read too much I think... I think I understand the biological process that needs to be taking place but I STILL feel lost when it comes to knowing when the tank is cycled.

    I believe when you have no ammonia or nitrites the tank is cycled.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    Well, I think I've had the fish for a little over 2 weeks now, (terrible memory, I apologize) and the levels were still at 0 for ammonia and nitrites last time I tested, maybe a small reading for nitrates. Haven't checked it yet today and last reading was Friday I think..guess we'll test again and see. I need to go buy a kit that has all liquid tests... I hate the 5-in-1 strip, the colors seem to bleed together if you're not extremely careful with it and then I don't trust the readings.
