You really need to read those links posted. New tanks need to be cycled. Cycling means growing bacteria in your filter to remove the ammonia your fish produce. Water changes are VERY important to the health of your fish. If your tank is in the middle of cycling you may need to do water changes daily so your fish can stay healthy.

Leaving a tank empty like that is NOT cycling. Please read all the info.

Stunting a fish is where the outsides stop growing and the inside keeps growing. The spine can curve and the fish will die a horrible and painful death.

Can you please try and use proper grammar and stop using text talk. It is against the site rules and is hard to read. Thank you.
