Hi everyone, I dont know if im posting this right but I couldnt seem to find out how to post on the mobile app.
Im a beginner and just bought a 20 gal
long, 30 quiet flow external filter with 200 gph
, aqueon pro100 watt adjustable heatr, and bubble wand. I just set up everything today and put stress coat water conditioner and the beneficial biofiltration stuff. Its been runing for about 24 hours with no fish. I want a community consisting of 3 cory cats, maybe 5 tropical tetras of some sort, and a pleco and maybe a couple barbs to.cycle with. My questions are should I test water quality before I start to.cycle my tank,(doing a fish cycle) and are barbs good fish to cycle with. 2nd question. can non tropical fish tolerate the water temp tropical fish need? Any help would be much apprieciated, and its good to be here.
