Firstly I'd like to thank everyone, I have so many questions and I appreciate the answers.
My 50 gal is finally getting cycled after the "seashell incident".
I k now the proper procedure is to add a few fish, then a few more until you have your tank stocked like you want it.
My problem is that I want some specific fish. THere is a place that has all the fish I want about 1-2 hours away from me. They will ship, but I was planning on just picking them up.
Can I safely add several fish to a cycled tank, I plan on adding cycle also.
In the tank I plan on:
6-8 top lined minnows(Maybe a few more)
4 flag fish.
and some darters.
So the tank shouldnt really be over stocked I wouldnt think.
Am I going to make it super stressful for the fish?
