We have another planned trip to the fish store next weekend to pick up some shoaling fish. Is it safe to assume my cycle can withstand the addition of 7 small fish? I had wanted to pick up the otos, too, but I want to make sure my cycle can withstand the additions before I go doing that. The nerite I added doesn't do any cleaning what-so-ever, I'm going to scrape the algae off with a razor today during my WC.
On another note, the cousin's tank crashed, everyone is dead and she's convinced she smells chlorine in the tank and is taking water to our LFS even though she already dumped out the tank water and washed out the tank and I ran my test kit on the water the fish died in and the ammonia reading was off the charts of my API master. (Same kit the LFS uses....) She had 1 DG, 2 nerites, 1 mystery snail and 6 neon tetras in a 2.5 gallon unfiltered tank that had a couple stem plants but no light and the window light wasn't barley enough to keep them alive. She came home same day with another fish, though - this time a betta and a sterilite bin to keep him in until the LFS tests her unused water for the same things I did.
Can you tell I'm frustrated?
