Good advice! Remember also the smaller the tank, the harder it is to maintain. I always go by this formula 3 inches of fish per gallon in your tank. so if you fish are three inches each, you should not have more than 10 fish. If fish are smaller you can have more. Hope this helps some.

Mike.

I don't have 10.fish and I already got a larger tank. The water had cleared up on its own
I guess it's cycled now. And the nitrates are good. Thanks
