Hi all

Howdy y'all as I'm new to the forum I figured I'd give a shout out to all of ya nice to meetcha I just set up my first tropical tank it's been a bumpy road as all the first fish I put in (sailfin Molly m and Molly f 2 Yamato shrimp and a couple o coolie loaches died so I restocked and they were cool until the ich pets at home infected me with lol I'm currently treating it but a quick question how long does the water stay blue for ??? Other than that my new fish apart from a mild itch are settling in nicely except the male Betta who has issues with the sail fin anyway would love to hear from ya all about ich treatments and what amazing fish u all have oh lol I'm Jak btw

Welcome to AA!

Glad you joined the site!

I'd recommend reading a few articles to help you understand what you are up against, and why your first fish died.

Ich:
Freshwater Ich? Yuck!

Cycling:
I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!

Thanks all the ich page helped slot unfortunately the cycling page wouldn't open but I assume it means changing the water every week or so but leaving enough to let the appropriate bacteria accumulate if I'm wrong I'd appreciate someone filling me in plz and thanks all for the warm welcome
