Hi!

First of all, Merry Christmas!
My name is Mike and I received an early Christmas gift of a new aquarium. My tank is still cycling and I'm doing my best to have patience to let it complete the cycle!!!

Glad to be a part of this forum!

Mike

I have 3 Zebra Danio's in a 28 gallon tank. They seem to be healthy especially if we walk up to the tank and they think they're going to be fed!!

My ammonia has been fairly steady at between the .25 & .50 reading. pH steady at 7.0, Nitrite at zero and Nitrate at around 5.0 so I guess since my ammonia is not at zero my tank is still cycling. The tank has been set up for 5 weeks with the 3 Danio's in it for about 2 weeks.

Thanks for asking!

Mike
