I've been reading this forum for about a week and it seems like a friendly and helpful place, so I joined.
I just bought a 20 gallon freshwater for my daughter who is 2 1/2 and loves fish. Unfortunately I rushed into it without doing my research first, but my tank and 5 platys are doing alright. The tank is cycling, my water is within tolerances and my fish seem healthy. I lost one Platy, but he didn't seem healthy from the first day. I used BIO-Spira after I found out that I rushed things and my tank is 3 weeks ahead of schedule... according to water testing and what I've read. I know I'm not out of the woods yet, but it's a better start than what I thought would happen.
Welcome to the forum Coley - it's great to have you with us.
If you have any questions feel free to post in the appropriate sections and we'll help you out as much as we can along the way. :D
Fishkeeping is a fantastic hobby, and I'm sure you'll love it as much as you daughter!
Welcome to the forum Coley. I've been in this hobby, off and on (mostly on), for over 45 years and still get a thrill out of seeing new faces getting their feet wet. (bad joke, but I couldn't resist.)
Platys are a relatively tough fish and should survive your rambunctiousness. A 20g tank is a good starter tank and I hope your daughter enjoys it to the point that she is pulled into the hobby when she gets older.
Don't worry about your "mistake", we have all made many. I can't count how many I've made over the years. If I wrote a book about them, it would be voluminous.
hope you enjoy your stay,
