I know! i saw him! But who knows maybe I'll get a madnarin one day.

I just did my water testing again and got this:
ammonia- .25
nitrite 0
nitrate 10

I threw in a pretty good heaping of fish food earlier so maybe thats the spike? I'm trying to make sure that ammonia goes back to 0 by the am to be sure its cycled.

The tank is "cycling" but it's most certainly not cycled.

I'll test again later or tomorrow. Hopefully the ammonia is gone by morning and there are no trites. My cuc seems pretty happy in there and theres pods crawling all over everything. lol

I'm aiming to order the fish by wednesday at the latest, i get paid that day.

I dont know, I feel like the ammonia Is just a spike. There isn't much to eat the food so it's all rotting. She put seeding material in
