Great links. I think I FINALLY get it. :)
I've printed out the info and will keep it on hand so anytime I'm tempted to post another question regarding cycling I'll refer to that first.

Thanks so much for posting that!

PS. That's a great looking dog. Yours?

You're welcome. Those two links are what taught me about cycling when I first started. After I read it I was like "oooohh now I see" and I'm always posting them here.

Yup, that's my girl. She is a 10 year old boxer-lab mix that we rescued from a vet. She was taken to this vet by her owners who had her for 7 years because they didn't want her any more and thought they could have her just put down. As a life-long dog owner I can say she is one of the best dogs I've ever had. She is great with my kids and my cats.


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!

Thanks for the links very helpful, I really should have read up more b4 getting started but I think my tank is ok now been over a month and ammonia, nitrites reading 0. but I have got a cherry barb with a silver spot (I've asked what it might be on another thread) just hope he's not sick. Thanks again

Silver spot could be anything if there is only one. It may very well be just a scale missing. I would use Melafix until you know more. Another natural product that will not effect the water parameters, fish, or plants in any way but works wonders. I use it regularly when I change the water. It's avaialble at all chain stores. Works miracles!
