I cycled the first tank with neons. It worked but I know now they're not the fish to use. Mollies, danios etc I know, I know. I have two of the 6 neons left. I of the two was white about a week ago, I had accepted that he was going to die. I found him again this morning after not seeing him for ages, he was brilliant blue and red again! cheered me up no end.
The two that are left are in fulltime hiding, Its been about a week since i added my small plec so I'm thinking of adding 4 more neons to make them feel a bit safer. When I had the 6 previously, they shoaled all the time and never really hid.
I was more of a n00b then.
I'm having a real hard time finding ammonia, tried various chemists and supermarkets.
Maybe a fish cycle would be ok if I used more suitable fish this time?
Can fish survive a cycle? The appropriate fish anyway?
Just filled the tank, gonna run the external filter and heater for a few days after de-chlorinating the water.
Comments are very welcome guys, thanks
