Thanks for welcoming me.

Regarding the the tank that Ro' is in, I did not cycle the tank like I would have for other fish. What I did do was use Betta water conditioner (almost 48 hours before Ro' was introduced) and also used a hint of stress coat when Ro' was introduced to his personal tank.

He will have a gallon and a half or two gallon water change per week.

With a normal tank that includes a filter and much more, I would have completed a full fishless cycle with ammonia. Have not done it in years but I bet I could remember quickly.

Thanks for your message and suggestions.

PWCs are very common with any fish i have had. Tank is a five but filled to about four and a quarter since it doesn't have a lid. It's a
Modded chi. And there is a heater.

since its not cycled yorur looking at large,daily water changes and constant testing. and extra water changes when the ammo/nitrite/nitrate get too high. i thought fluval chi's had filters built in,you need one for any fish,if it doesnt work or there isnt one i suggest getting a small internal/HOB filter

In response to your inquiry, thats the reason I started modding the tank. ^_^ Once I find a HOB I like, I'll make sure to take a pic and show it to you.
