hello and warm welcome to you. :)
wow!! new tank,fantastic. :)
now then,without a sorce of amonia to start your cycle,
your tank is not,and will not be ready for fish. :( sorry.
the local pet store will say to you "yeah your water is fine"
you'll pick your fish and within a couple of days they will become i'll
and could die.
so now don't panic,all you need to do is follow this advise
and we'll have you up and running with fish in no time,
the time in which your tank needs to build up the bacteria in the filter
gives you time to look up the fish you want,even looking at them at the shop.write down the ones you really like the look of and want
then come back and run the list by the folks here,and we'll beable to
let you know if they are the right mix for your tank and water conditions.
and buy yourself your own test kit!! it's an aquarists right arm.
you get to know what your quarium water is doing,without having to check at the shop. we tend to use API most of us here,not the test strips,
they seem not to be as reliable. http://www.fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=343
