traumatized children

ten gallon tank, some crushed coral, visi therm, aqua clear filter, new foam pads which you placed in the sump of your main tank for 5 days, 50$

bio spira marine nitrifying bacteria, 25$

a total of three true percs, 75$

all so some perfectly fine fish can suffer and die in a qt.

thats right kids come see austin due battle with the "tank of death".

and our next chalenger is nala.

A little bitter are we?

Do you know what the problem is? Are you getting any ammonia readings?

Yep sometimes it sucks, no doubt!!

Maybe you should cycle the q-tank and leave it running so it will be ready for the next one.

I would leave it running for a while as well, and let it cycle and run its course. I would also use cheaper fish to cycle tank. Keep your head up. Things will come around. I would skip on the bio spira marine nitrifying bacteria, and cycle with LS form anothers tank. I would go Bare bottom before I would go with CC. I like LS myself.

I would=an opinion
