After struggling through a fish in cycle on my grandfathers 55g I got so mad today.

I sent him to the store to get a new 306 so that I could have my 305. He bought it.... and then listened to the employee at the store who told him to TOSS OUT THE CYCLED MEDIA!

I told him that's wrong. His response: well you don't get paid to sell fish. I'll listen to the employee.

get him to read info on this forum
he might be able to understand and learn the proper cycling method
employee's at a pet store get sales commission they could care less how many fish you loose it's all about how much money they can bring in
sorry grandad you need to listen to your grandson/granddaughter which ever it may be
there only looking after your main interests

So, did he toss the media out? And if he do, did you dig it outta the trash?

Of course he tossed it... every bit of the media. I don't live with my grandparents so this conversation was held over the phone. They live across town. He is convinced the employee knows it all. Ha.

Anywho ...... when I swing by tomorrow I'm good to seed it and give him my bottle of prime. I was livid!

I pulled my (now deceased) clownfish out of the clam he was recently hosting. No fun...

Just tested the 20 and fry tanks. Noticed we have more fry in the 20 and thought "I need to start a predator tank". Told my wife about
It and why. Then decided I enjoy sleep in my bed enough that taking the fry to the LFS was a much better idea. Lol!!! Stared at the 40b that I started cycle on yesterday!! Woot!! Have to decide on the aqua scape and get to planting. 2mrw is water change Sunday.
