  4. AWW how sweet. Thank you ! Thanks a lot i'm happy about it too
  5. After a pretty successful 6 weeks-long quarantine, here is Fifi in her 55 gallon home! Thanks for watching !!!
  6. I sure will. Slowly raising her Qt temp. to match my main tank She will be moved saturday
  7. I will transfer her as soon as I can. Pictures will be mandatory ;p
  8. I have my fish Fiona in a 10 gallon Qt tank for over 6 weeks now... I didn't know this was an option but it makes sense. She is pretty small still (37 grams) and would be going into a 55 gallon. I will probably go this way. Letting you know how it goes if I do! Thanks for your input
  9. Thanks you so much! Aww, must have been do frustrating! I'll definitely get a KH test when I get the chance!
  10. Thanks so much for the help, I will just wait. And keep trying to explain to my dad why I can't just "put any fish in there yet" haha
  11. I will purchase a KH test next time I go to the LPS. I guess patience will be the key...
  12. I started my cycling process on October 11th, dosing at 4 ppm of ammonia. One aquaclear 70 running. The next day (October 12th), I added a heather and raised the temperature at 80 degrees. On October 20th, I added a dose of Fluval biological enhancer (because why not?) On October 26th, I did a 50% WC and brought ammonia to 2ppm (thinking maybe I had dosed too much...) Added a second filter. Ammonia Tank: Was 4 ppm before WC, now is at 2 ppm Tap: 0 ppm Nitrite Tank: 0 ppm Tap: 0 ppm Nitrate: Tank: 5 ppm Tap: 0 ppm pH: Tank: 7.6 Tap: 7,2 kH and gH: I currently do not own the testers for these. Where did I go wrong? I'm starting to feel a little desperate
  13. After a month, no news about my order. The website seems to be unaccessible anymore. Had to get help from PayPal.
  14. Wow! I LOVE how your tank looks! And your white fish is so beautiful!
  15. Thanks!!! It's not perfect yet but I'm happy with how it's looking... Now if the cycle could hurry up a little xD
  16. How is everyone taking such clear pictures of these wiggly little things? Haha
  17. Glad to know I'm not alone! Hihi
