Finally got my tank cycled,stocked and clear
Just want to say thanks to all who helped. I started with no knowledge about tanks and fish. I went out and bought a 20 gallon for my daughter who is two.
It was a interesting journey. Over all I lost only two fish. A Platy and a Cory. I went through a horrible bacteria bloom, constant water changes and testing and I was just about to give up and everything started to settle. Now I have a very nice and happy community. I plan on adding some drift wood (it's soaking now) and a couple of live, easy plants in a couple of weeks or so.
I'm already planning for at least one more tank. I want a ten gallon for a hospital tank and maybe....maybe a 20 long, 29 or 30 gallon tank, but that won't be for a while yet.
I have this one set up with multi color gravel and it's more to entertain my daughter. I'd like to do a natural setting type tank for me. :D
