Hey OFL! I was wondering how long on average it would take to cycle a 10 gallon with a filter and live plants? It's heavily landscaped, as it will be a sorority tank. I have a test kit on hand already.
OFL, I had a very strange case of fin nipping. My fish eventually ended up dying--even though he was fine this morning. His tank mate (divided 10 gallon) is not exhibiting any signs of strange behavior. I have only seen this particular fish nip himself today. He wouldn't even come up for air and just continue to turn in circles, so I imagine that he suffocated. It is so upsetting. Is this common? Should I worry about the other fish in the tank?
