well i guess the fish store told you those fish were ok ?
shame really,they were destined to doom,naughty store !
could you possibly take him back and change him for a few danios instead,
serpae are best in a large group,and not a particularly nice personality fish.
ment to say,live plants would help a lot with the tank too.
probably not at this time, its been a few weeks. I have started researching other fish to put in with him once the cycle is complete. if nothing else i will get more serpaes. I like the Emperor tetras and the Brilliant Rummy Nose tetras
Okay, quick update. I am 5 1/2 weeks into my cycle. Ammonia has dropped drastically the last few days. Been at 0 ppm for 2 days now. The nitrates have been back and forth between 20 and 40 ppm but the nitrites are still between 1 and 3 ppm...About how long does it take for those nitrites to come back down. According to my test strips (also used API for testing) 1-3 ppm are the "cautious" section. thanks guys and gals
