incorporated tetra safe start into my first aquarium ever earler this year. Afer a week of perfect params, started adding fish 3 or 4 at a time to 15.

Prior to that cycled a 10-galllon / w 3 austrailian rainbsows who ended up with burnt gills. I am ashamed to say that I listened to one "expert" at an aquatic store before doing in-depth research.This was a mistake, but it is also why I have five Australian Raibnbows and selected a comboof fish thought to be compatible such as neon dwarf rainbows ane zeba danios.

Would go the supplimental way henceforth (such as tetra safe start)

Take care and God bless.
