Happy to help
. Feel free to start a thread about your new tank in the freshwater getting started section so other members can help you through the process if needed.
For now, until you can get a good test kit (we mostly recommend API Master Kits), try to perform minimum daily 50% partial water changes (pwc
's) until you can discover your levels. It's very important to do enough pwc
's to keep your ammo and no2
below .25 at all times when you have fish in your tank to prevent them from suffering during the cycling process.
A bottle of Seachem Prime water conditioner will also be a big help during the process.
Remember, there is no such thing as too many water changes as long as you are dechlorinating and temperature matching the water.
