It's cycled!!!!! Big thanks to all of you!!
You all have been so patient with me as I bumbled my way through a fish-in cycle on my 30 gallon FW tank.
Just want to thank all of you who answered my newbie posts, coached and counseled and got me through it. It took 3 months, but I didn't lose a fish and the tank is gorgeous!
Readings for 3 days straight: 0/0/5 Yea!!
Oh - and I also cycled a 5 gallon during this time. Sadly I lost a guppy but I suspect he had issues when I brought him home.
Anyway - thanks again!
PS - My only regret (besides NOT cycling fishless) was the I didn't buy an Aquean water changer until 2 weeks ago. Would have saved me sooo much work. LOVE that thing.30 gal FW:dw gourami, cory cats, ABN pleco, Colombian & Serpae tetra, nerites & mystery snails
5.5 gal FW: crown tail betta
90 gal FW: Blood Parrots, severums, Jurupari, EBJD, congo tetras, angel, dw gourami, mystery snails
