Once Javamoss becomes established, it will grow very quickly and take over parts of your tank. Keep an eye on it. Java fern will die a little at first, many leaves will turn brown and black and just stay there. Those are rotting leaves and Java Fern leaves rot very slowly. You will need to trim those. Lastly, java fern, once matured, will spawn babies like crazy, both java plants do well in low light. If you go with a low lgiht tank, i would also suggest duckweed as a floating plant. It grows like crazy and does a super excellent job of keeping nitrates low. However, it blocks off light to the bottom of the tank. Fish like the shade, also adds to the secure but will prevent you from keeping any high light plants.the cracks between the duckweed plants also adds a cool effect to your gravel, Just a though. Otherwise, medium slow growing plants like coffeloia, fi you can find it, do well and are pretty hardy.

My tank have cycled two days ago and i went to buy 3 guppies to put in my tank but i was too busy with my lil bro graduation, i didn't have time to post and upload the pics like i said. Anyway, i was so happy when i saw my Nitrite test is 0, in fact, i tested Nitrite first. Here is a pic with of completion. Does anybody know what happen to this fish or how to cure this?



Here is a pic of all the fish i have in there now.



One weird thing that getting me worry is one of my guppy tail is fading and it lost all of it color. The only thing i can see now is the bone in the tail. I don't think this little fella will last long. T.T





PS: Special Thanks to all the people who post in this thread and help me start my tank and give me a better knowledge about fishless cycle. Thank you!

wait nitrite should always be 0 shouldnt it? nitrate is what shoulda become 0 and then when you have fish it should be under 40 ppm. The fade in color could be because its a diffrent enviroment for the fish. OTherwise its the diet your feeding them. RIcher diets willa chieve brighter colors.

Nitrite is at 0 and nitrate is under 20. The faded color guppy just died. T.T it was very bad, all its color is faded before it died, even it body. Other guppies starting to show it too. What should i do?

the color fade is usually caused by stress. It means something is stressing them. Dose a little bit of stress coat, itll help them a bit, are they eating? and what temperature is your water? should be between 76-80. ALso post the rest of your water parameters, the ph, ammonia.
