sort of a newbie...
New to forum - hi! I had great success in the past with betas and black moors but now I'm trying something new. I've got a newly cycled tank - fishless. I've just stocked with BleedingHeart Tetras (3) and Neons (2). I know the Neons are kind of fragile for a new tank, but I wanted to try something other than Danios. Tank seemed to cycle fine, see readings below. Any suggestions?
Nitrites - 0
Hardness - 120
Total Alk - 120
Ph - 7.2
Ammonia - 0
3 BH Tetras, 2 Neons
how long has the tank been running?
You mean you can put together blackoor with bettas?? Ive heard that bettas are territorial and cannot be mix with goldfish.. Are they getting along well?? how long you been keeping them together? :shock: :idea:
This is weird. You said your tank is still cycling and you have zero ammonia and nitrites with detectable nitrates.:squint:
If you have no Ammonia and Nitrite's then the tank is already cycled!
sorry, I wasn't specific. The betta and the black moor were in separate tanks. The new tank is up and running 6-7 weeks and so far so good with the tetras and neons.
oh, 6-7 weeks then your tank is most likely cycled. all your readings look optimum to me...good job! =)
He said it was a (newly cycled tank) he did not say it was still cycling
And as for the neons they will be fine in you newly cycled tank i cycled my tank with neons and they survived-in your face flattrack23(neon tetra's are not hardy enough to cycle a tank at all. If they are in there now than I'm sorry but expect them to die) :P
Oh ya back on topic your nitrates are 20 whens the last time you did a parctial water change?
crazie.eddie-You said they were gunna die too, maybe i had a couple tuff tetras
