Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have been out of the freshwater fish keeping hobby for about 10 years so I am what I would call a newbie. Any comments, suggestions, or help would be appreciated.
I have a 20 Gal. High fish tank. Gravel, plastic plants, and rocks. I plan on having a mixture of Corys, Tetras, and maybe a small Gourami. Filtration is an Aqueon 20 filter hanging on the back. Right now the water is 79 degrees. This is what I have done so far....
About 2 weeks ago I added the water and de-chlorinator. About a week ago I started adding fish food for my fishless cycle. This past week I started taking readings with the API Master test kit...here are my results so far...
Day 4 skipped testing
Day 5 (today)
I've been adding a pretty good pinch of fish food flakes every day. Water is slightly cloudy. Doesn't smell. No water changes so far. My question to you. What is my next step? Am I headed in the right direction? Any concerns or comments are much appreciated. Thank you for your time.
