Frequent Water Changes. Keep your ammonia down.

Yep, I agree. You're going to be a slave to water changes for awhile. Test the water at least once a day with an API liquid test kit, feed sparingly, and get two 5 gallon buckets. One for clean water and the other for the dirty, a bottle of Prime or similar treatment, and a gravel vac.

Is it possible to get some used filter media or gravel from an established tank? That would help greatly.

I speak from experience. :lol:
