How long should the spike to last?
Hard to say how long it will last. Probably a week or so at least. It is high maintenance cycling with fish... Especially neons.

Is it odd my Ammonia level is .15
and Nitrites are 0?
I understand when both are zero I'm close, but what is the typical Nitrate level for a newly cycled tank?
I'm at 2.5...

Anywhere from 10-20 is acceptable, but your getting super close.

I threw this question into someones thread...

I was just reading about Neon Tetra Disease as I had 5 of them. I lost one and was left with four. Today I got 3 more and noticed that 2 of the tank ones started going crazy after each other, now that the 3 are in the tank they are all going wild relentlessly, fins up like Jaws and non stop. The older ones look duller in color than the new ones, but are non stop going after each other as well as the new ones.

Is this just normal behavior???

Are cardinals the way to go??

Much thanks.

Also, how do I start my own thread????
