How i'm doing w/ cycling and new fish!
« on: May 24, 2012, 03:48:27 PM »

I ran my 20 gal tank for about 2 weeks empty-and I happened to be at petsmart when they delivered new 1 inch long regular fantails that were healty!  I got a white one and an orange one w black fins.  They have been doing well! I change out about 7 gallons every 8 to 10 days,and the water is crystal, and all toxin levels are acceptable.  I am the only one who feeds them now-my family just has to stay mad, they are MY FISH and I want them to live!  I alternate between flake and tubi worms.  I wnt to thank NOSSIE and all others who gave me advice!  I will send pics soon but they are little now, and move so fast!

Yes, the fish do swim too fast for photos sometimes. Try taking a short video and upload to utube

glad the tank is working out; your fish should enjoy it for a year or two,after which they will be ready to move up to a bigger tank ( and so will you) Grin Grin

Glad to hear this... Smiley Hopefully these little fish will have long and healthy lives!
As scrivens said, might be useful to upgrade later on, just repeating for emphasis.
