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

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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...
