I prefer not to dose anything to a tank while it's cycling.. (except for granulated sugar.. 1 tsp per 10 gallons- I believe it helps a tank cycle faster... I do it to my own tanks, but I haven't done a controlled study on it.)

(To clarify- Ammo-lock doesn't add chemicals to the water, and Prime is simply a water conditioner...)

Well the poor lil white danio died today. Let's hope he's the last for a long time.

I am happy to report that my nitrate levels have subsided, and the nitrites are almost back to 0. I have lost no more fishies, and in fact I woke up to some guppy fry in my small tank! I counted at least 7. I was going to move the mama back into the main tank, but she's still quite fat, so I'm waiting for a bit, as my 10 gal has 4 danios who eat like little sharks. I seriously doubt any more that are born could escape them. Plus my filter in that tank is not exactly fry-friendly.

So, quick question friends, when would it be okay to add the mama back to the main tank? Is she done birthing for now? It's been a few hours since her last fry popped out.
