you need to get test kits for ammonia, ph, hardness and nitrites...


all your fish will die because you havent cycled the tank.....

the cloudiness is normal, just keep it fish-free for until you have no nitrites or ammonia and everything else is fine...:D

do note that without the fish you will need some other form of ammonia addition to the tank in order for it to cycle...

usually about 2 weeks but i wouldn't time it by days, i would put fish in when there is no amonia, 7.0ph, correct hardness for the fish you wanna pu tin there and no nitrites....

Hope this helps! :D

It would be best to move your fish in your friend's tank. In the meantime, I'd use either platies or danios to cycle the tank. Your friend may take them after cycling if he likes. Make sure that in the end, your ammonia and nitrites are zero. Any detectable level can kill your fish unfortunately.
