  1. I have 2 fantail goldfish in a 65 lt tank. The filter is a hang on back filter but back because i keep it in my room i turn the filter off at night. Does it affect the cycle of the tank or is it ok?
  2. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone would care to share how long your fishless cycle took, especially if you fishless cycled without old media. I had to do a total tear-down of my tank and have been using pure ammonia. It is currently at 3-4 ppm for 10 days without any sign of dropping or nitrites. The last time I fishless cycled, I think it took about a month, but that was nearly 5 years ago. When my tank had a massive BB death and re-cycle about 16 months ago, I had to do fish-in cycling, they suffered since I had to go to Europe for two weeks and had my hapless boyfriend trying to do water changes, and so I don't know how long that took to fix itself. Specs: 29-gallon tank with sand and moderate planting; two AQ 70s; bubble wand; 81 F; lights for the plants during the day. So.... I know that the correct counsel is patience, but I'd like to know if something's wrong or what other people experienced.
  3. I am returning to Koko's and goldfish keeping after a six year break. Here is a little of my fish keeping background: My dad kept fish off and on when I was a kid- once we kept goldfish for a whew years until a lengthy power outage required we return them to the LFS, and later the kept tropical fish after I foolishly tried to keep a tropical tank in my dorm room in college. My first experience with keeping my own goldfish started while I was nearing the end of college. I started with a ten gallon tankwhim under gravel filter, and a tiny black moor named Lucien. When Lucien got sick for the first time I stumbled onto Koko's and gained a wealth of info that led me directly down the path toward goldfish obsession. I quickly began accruing more tanks, I had a grand total of three when I gave up my fish habit- one 29 gallon with three goldfish (black moor, fantail, calico fantail), one 20 gallon with three lion heads, and one ten gallon QT tank. At some point I started having severe allergy problems-I assumed it was from a fine film of mold under the hood of my tank, and after a devastating loss of a few fry I had painstakingly kept alive,and since my husband and I were about to move into our first apartment together, I decided to sell my tank and fish, and give up the fish keeping habit. Skip ahead approximately six or seven years. Since then I have graduated from college, completed my Masters degree, and I am in my fifth year of teaching art in elementary school to kindergarteners through sixth graders. I have been engaged, married (5 year anniversary next weekend!),and had my son who will turn four this year. I also have gone through elaborate allergy tests confirming that I am not allergic to ANY molds or mildews, (only dust mites- guess I should've vacuumed more often:() and my best friend decided after three years of fish woes to get rid of her tank, so here I am again. I am currently in the process of setting up and cycling my new-to-me 29 gallon bow front tank. From the moment we brought the tank into the house I have been completely fish obsessed, worse than ever before. I quit my fish habit cold turkey six years ago and now it's almost like my past addiction is trying to make up for lost time. I plan to use this blog to post updates as I go through the process of fishless cycling and adding fish to my tank. Hoping that the blogging outlet will stop me from going completely fish crazy.
