I have had all my fish in a qt
tank now for 6 days. I used all water from the main tank to fill this 20g qt
tank. I have a small hob
filter, small powerhead running at the to of the water, and an airstone running on the bottom. I have 5 fish in the qt
. (see my signature for types of fish) I have been treating with cupramine. All the fish have been eating except the yello tang. He is hanging out in the corner at all times.
Now to the questions.
1. Can you ever achieve a low level of Nirite, and Ammonia in a qt
of this size, with this much bio-load? (I have done 4 water changes of 20-25%)
The Ammonia is just below 1.0
The Nitrite is .25
2. The qt
tank was set up new, with the main tank water as mentioned above. Does it have to have tim to cycle?
3. This is alot of fish for this size. What would you suggest as far as feeding amounts, time, and food for this qt
I am doing a 20% water change every day now, I can't do this for 4 more weeks!!!!!!!
IS THIS NORMAL FOR A QT
Thanks for hearing me Rant a little, and thanks for all the help.
