Hi jnj, and welcome to the forum! I am so sorry to hear about your difficulties. It's really hard getting started, esp. taking over another's tank, which was how I started. I'll give you a link for some really good articles, which included an article on how to cycle a tank when you already have fish:http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...es-154837.html. Be sure and check these out, cause they will help you to know how to proceed, as well as to help you to understand what questions to ask.

Hey. I'm one of those "idiots" who work at petco. Ill admit about 90% of their staff doesn't know about aquatics but once in a while ull find someone like me who actually does... lol. The dragonfish is a brackish specie. Very delicate. And they don't like bright lights. I tried keeping them for years and was always unsuccesful so I moved to the easier poly sengalus (dinosaur eel) on a fifty five id reccomend doing 2 marineland biowheel 350 filters. That's what I have on mine and my waters crystal clear all the time.
