How bout that?
Nothing wrong with that except low nitrates. At least, you got the ammonia and nitrites to zero.

Okay, I give.. Where abouts should the nitrates be?? I have looked in several resources and I have several books and I can't find a guide number. I have done 50% changes in this tank for 4 or 5 days to get the other levels down. I know it can depend on circumstances. The only thing I have found in relative stone is that 40 is too high and at that level is very toxic. My other tank hovers around 10 but today was 5 but I have been changing the tank every day pretty much with treatment for ick for almost 2 weeks.

:D

For most fish, anything below 40 is acceptable with below 30 even better, with other fish you need below 20

Honey Gourami

Hope finally made a decision on her own whether to live or die.....
......drum roll.....

She decided to live :D

Yesterday she surfaced to get in on the evening meal and I saw her swim briefly around the tank a few times. Today she has gone all out in the eating department. I have gone and checked on them several times this morning and evening around work as I put in a couple African frogs yesterday and when I stop and look in she looks back and has surfaced and shown some actual Gourami behavior. I put in some baby krill tonight and talk about get out of her way! Her color has improved even more but I still don't see any signs of the grey wash look going away. I am planning on doing some rearranging, I think a lot of her problem now is the other one. He has become very territorial and well..basically the whole tank is his...
