I have just got myself a new 120 litre tank after having no tanks for about 5 years.
The tank has black gravel with some dogwood. It was fresh from the fish shop so I scrubbed it and let it soak over night. I then added it to the tank and left it for a week before adding fish. I have used Tapsafe and Filter Start in the water to dechlorinate etc.
I added 6 neons 2 days ago and 4 have died
So, I have done a pwc
(about 60%) and the water is a far better colour. I am going to the fish shop today to have my water tested and to buy a testing kit. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best kit?
I have an order of plants coming this week and a lot of fish also coming. If anyone has any suggestions on the best way to ready my tank quickly, I would appreciate it, A LOT!
