I went looking for a fish for my pico! I've decided on a citrine goby. What color are the zoos? What fish did you see that you wanted the most today?

There was a really tiny oscellaris. He was so tiny and cute. Have a b/w in 55, but this was the regular orange one. He was maybe 3/4 of an inch. So cute!! I got a decent sized pink zoo, (lighting stinks on this pic- they're a really pretty pink colr)

not sure of actual name of the others, but 1 has blue center with green edge, other has orange center with greenish edges. Couldn't get a pic of the blue ones tonight cuz they didn't open much before lights out. Here's the orange center ones, which are kinda open

Day 5 of cycling. Here's results:
Ammo : 1
Nitrite: 5
Nitrate: 40

Is there a max high on nitrate during cycle? Theres no fish in there, just remember reading something about too high of nitrates will somehow stall the cycle. If so, what's that number?

Lol. Yeah I put my hand in the tank to clean. He was actually very docile and didn't go crazy. I've always had good responses with fish seeing me as the hand that feeds them so I've never been attacked. I guess I keep them week fed so they don't see my hand as food. Haha.

Day 6 of cycle:
Ammo: 0
Nitrite: 5 (or so, 5 is highest mine reads)
Nitrate: 40

Can't believe ammo already went from 8 to 0!! Guess adding the filter media from my 55 really helped!!

Day 8 of cycle:
Ammo:0
Trites: 2
Trates: 40

Happy to see Trites are coming down!! Added small amount of ammonia. The ammonia I add in every day is all getting used up, so that's a great thing!!

I hope so!! I don't think the dwarf angel likes the 10g QT he's been in for about a week. he hides all the time and he didn't used to when he was in the 55g. Feel bad for him. I'm off this weekend, so I'm hoping it'll be ready by then. Yea!!
