This is first-time post, and I appreciate all I've learned just by reading.
I've had my 55 gallon for several months. I have three fancy guppies, four adult platies, and about 10 fry birthed several weeks apart (bought four female platies, but turns out at least one was pregnant). For the last...
1. Size of tank?
36 gallon bowfront
2. Water parameters
d. pH, KH and GH?pH7, kH80,GH120
e. Test kit?API 5 in 1 test strips and Jungle ammonia test strips (I know these aren't ideal, maybe after Christmas I can afford to get a kit)
3. Temperature? 78F...
This is my first post and also my first tank. We admittedly ventured in cichlids somewhat misguided. wanting lots of colour and some variation in size we started with tetras and were sold 7 cichlids.
The lucky tetras that werent eaten were rescued and replaced by more cichlids :)
