Smile Hello from Texas

Its been 20 years since I had my own tank. I currently own a 20g freshwater tank. I wish I would have followed my gut regarding fishless cycling, but was talked into the alternative by a local aquarist. So I am currently at 0 amm and nitrite spikes doing 25% h2o changes every other day and waiting it out. I have 2 zebra danios (one didn't make the ammonia stage), and 1 panda cory (same on ammonia stage) and 3 ghost shrimp. After the cycle is over I plan to get one more danio and at least 2 more cories. My poor cory thinks he is a danio and schools with them for now. Its really strange. Due to the fact that I have a live planted tank, I also have pond snails. I have hard water, which they love, so I am cultivating them into a 2.5g tank for my future Masters Thesis research. I also have a beta tank. I look forward to meeting and learning from all of you

Welcome Ivy. You are not alone with the cycling. That's how I ended up here. A great group with a lot of help. Glad for another Betta keeper. I have two and am growing very fond of them. I've run out of room for more or I'd probably be over run with them.
Karen.

I just went to Wally world to pick up some "grandson supplies"
you know an actionfigure, Doritos, etc.

It's a little cool out. But when I pick him up at kindergarted this afternoon, it'll be nice kite flying weather.

Have a super great day
