  1. Its been well over 8 weeks of fishless cycling. Only adding pure ammonia?
  2. My tank has been cycling for one week. Fish less cycle. I used plain ammonia. This is my readings after a week. No water changes yet. Is this uncommon?
  3. I bought this white ammonia for cycling. Active ingredients are Ammonium Hydroxide. No bubbles when shaken. Also how much would I need to add to a 60 g tank. One last thing, is it to 86 degrees during cycle?
  4. I am in the beginning of starting a new tank for fancies. I am just wondering how you guys get yours so big? Do you get them as babies and feed them special food or is it some kind of ancient Chinese secret?
  5. Anyone have a Buddha in your aquarium? I would love to see him in there, and tell me where you got him!
  6. I bought two that circulated 340 (I think) an hour HOB filters. So we should be good there!
  7. I am excited to get a new aquarium started here in my new house! I plan on buying a nice 60g tank with stand today. I have some knowledge on how to start everything because of this forum but just give me some refresher. I know about the cycling but maybe r mind me what I may need? Obviously filters, media for the filters things like that. I wish I had people I know to get some of their established media but unfortunately I do not how many gallons of water should the filters clean? Isn't it twice the amount of the water? I'm a little fuzzy but I know someone can assist! Thanks guys! Feels great to be back
  8. I use Tetra Whisper EX70, I have 2 of them on my 55 and I love them! But I'd get them off Amazon. They're cheaper than buying through store.
  9. They have been flashing. No sign of Ich or Velvet but I've raised the temperature and it hasn't been working.
  10. I am using Kosher Salt to do a QT for my mollies and platys. Is it 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons or 1 tablespoon per gallon? I've different things.
  11. Your angel is beautiful And I love all your live plants.
  12. He said he bought it used 1 year ago. The day he bought it it was filled with water but he had been using it for a reptile tank. He said he'd go $100 for it. That's awesome I think. But he's probably just trying to sell me on it!
  13. I have never done anything like this. I'm not even 100% on how it's done.
