Ammonia Question from NOOB
Well obviously I should have done more research because now my tank is cycling with three fish in it... a clown, a trigger, and a puffer... the am levels are pretty high and the nitrates are a bit more than normal too. I already went over how I should care for the tank and let it cycle but I was wondering if I could move my fish to a small tank for the time being... here is what I was thinking.
Buy a 10 or 20 gallon, add a small filter, heater, and power head and let them chill in there for a bit. I know it is small but it is better than them dying from ammonia. Maybe by the time that tank begins to cycle in a week or two the other one will be in much better shape. Is this a stupid idea? I already stated that I am not able to bring the fish back to the store (it was a petco abotu 45 min from me) and I don't have another tank. Is this a feasable idea or will it just do more harm than good?
