1st step :)
This is my 200 litre aquarium, which at the moment it at its cycling. It's already been 1 week at its cycle!
I know that I have to arrange the pipe of the air bubbles and also need to change the background, because it has a little of air. I tried to arrange it with a card, which made a difference but not good enough.
Any comments and help will be appreciated :) and sorry for the photo quality, I just used my mobile phone.

Hiya! Glad to hear you are doing a fishless cycle!
Not much advice to give you at this point as you don't mention what kind of fish you plan on keeping.
What are you using for filter?
Looking good so far!

I beleive that a fishless cycle is better since bacteria will increase by time and the fish will be more safe to live.
I am planning for a community tank and this is the filter that I'm using:

+1 to the fishless cycle.
Filters rated volume & capacity [I can see it's a Nexx but what size is it rated for?] would be helpful lol.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Tanks always look amazingly improved after putting plants in don't they? Looks good. What kind of fish do you plan on having?

Yes, plants made a lot of difference!!
I'm planning on having - Male Assorted Mollies, Male guppies, tetras, rainbow fish, catfish, and I'm not sure about rainbow sharks, as some people told me they can be aggressive and others told me they will be ok.
At the moment those are the fish I can think of, maybe someone can give me more ideas it would be appreciated!
