Hi there from Wisconsin

Just started up a 75-gallon freshwater tropical aquarium. I wanted something much smaller, but my husband talked me up until we reached the big one HE wanted. LOL

I had several freshwater aquariums, both tropical and fancy goldfish, over 10 years ago, so I'm starting again, but this time on a MUCH bigger playing field.

We added six danios, and after five days or so of them doing great, we just added three congo tetras, three head-and-tail light tetras and three serpae tetras. No more fish for awhile. (Famous last words, I know, as I already plan on setting up another tank...hee hee)

Glad to be here!

Hi Lisa! Did you cycle your tank? What are your water parameters?

Cycling it now, Austin. pH is around 7.5-7.8, 0 ammonia and nitrites, nitrates around 10-20 ppm.

Started up the tank on February 18th and used/using Nutrafin Cycle. Forty-eight hours after startup, added the 6 danios. Added the other nine fish this past Saturday.

Everything seems to be going well!
