We're new to the forum - and new to fish keeping! My girlfriend picked me up a fish tank for my 19th birthday, never too old to start! That was a week ago, and since then we've been hooked. Whilst we've made some mistakes already; we're really enjoying the ride so far; and can't wait to move deeper into the hobby!
Thus far, we've got one primary tank which is 80 liters, and a secondary breeding tank which is 40 liters. The initial plan was to breed guppies, but we've opted for an in-fish cycle using platys.
We've got four in the 40 liter tank (I know this is a little overstocked for so early on, but the 80 liter tank isn't ready just yet for fish). We've had these for around 24 hours now, they seem perfectly happy and we conducted our first (50%) water change today, which went smoothly.
Water Test Levels
Ammonia - 0 - 0.25
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0
PH - 7.2
Any information regarding platy's would be great; their swimming patterns (where they like to stay in the tank), general behaviour, etc.
Oh, and we think our little sunset platy is pregnant, thoughts?
