how you began to cycle the tank in the first place
as i see the readings you have as Batman says shows the tank
is not cycled?
that's why you lost the fish you had.

i've finally got my tank to 0 ammonia and 0 nitrite. I began my cycle with my danio's in it, i know mistake number 1 buying fish as soon as i got my tank but we all gotta learn. Somehow the little guys have survived. But as far as how i began my cycle i didn't add anything to it as far as chemicals go. I just let it sit with my danio's in it and cycle naturally.

hi
leave the tank with the fish you have for a couple of weeks,
then after a water change,you could add a couple of fish at atime.
keep testing the water as you go,then you'll know if anything is
going wrong.

Well i got so excited that i had finally got my tank to normal water parameters that i had already added a couple of platy's hopefully this won't affect my tank too much. I am however gonna continue to do probably a 10% water change once a week and obviously continue to test my water.

I just wanna thank everyone who helped me out. My tank parameters are grerat now and i'm in the habit of doing a 10% weekly water change. I was wondering however if i should do a 25% water change once a month?

If you do 15-20% water changed a week then theres no need to do an extra big one once a month.
