Thanks ocean. I bought one of the "active" filters from Angels Plus to do my cycle, and got it a couple days ago. So far it seems like my ammonia has dropped a little, but I'm thinking the filter might not be as "active" as I was hoping for. Anyway, I have been thinking a lot about the fish I want to get. I definitely want a couple bristlenose plecos, and probably 5/6 black ruby barbs. Other then that I have been considering some zebra/leopard danios, white clouds, cardinal tetras, cherry barbs and a couple others. Not sure which of those I want to get though.
