Hope you find a good breeder.

Thanks, me too. I'm going to talk to my friend that owns a lfs and see if she knows a reliable supplier. She mainly deals in sw and corals, but surely she can find a breeder.

Finally getting fancy goldies!!

Tested tonight and nitrate is 5ppm, ammonia is 2ppm, a bit lower than yesterday. Still no nitrites, but I wasn't really expecting to see any yet. Ph is a steady 7.6ish, so things are moving along nicely!

Finally getting fancy goldies!!

Ammonia is being converted everyday but nitrites are lingering. They are so high that I don't know if I need to wait it out or do a large pwc to help to things along. Think I'll wait since my ph hasn't changed. I stopped by the fish section at Walmart yesterday and saw the cutest little fantails. One in particular stood out and I had to seriously fight the urge to impulse buy. It occurred to me that those fish were probably diseased, but I have meds on hand. Would it be stupid to get fish from there? I hadn't considered it before, but when I think of what will eventually happen to them, it makes me want to rescue the little guys.
I should add that my nitrites have been 5ppm+ for at least 5 days now.

Broke down and did a 90% water change tonight. Nitrites are still off the charts. Still waiting.
Saw the same baby fantail I wanted last time I went to Walmart and I decided to get her/him. She's in a qt tank and will be for a while. She's eating and being very sociable. She is so adorable. No regrets at all.

Hey Toad! I was starting to hear my echo in here lol. You're right, I'd convinced myself that if that fish was still there it was a sign that I should get it!
This cycle is driving me crazy

I can't wait to be able to set up my big tank again because I really want goldies too. I was at a petco and found the perfect little black moor but currently only have a 30g that's already stocked. I literally sat in my car and talked myself into driving away and not trying to 'figure it out later' lol, so I feel you

Lol thanks to my impulsiveness I get to do daily water changes in my uncycled qt tank while I'm waiting on the other tank to get ready.
What size is your big tank?
