New to the this hobby and I have lots of questions!
Hi everyone, I bought my first personal tank last week. It is only a 10 gallon. Wish I would have done more research before getting because I would have got a 20 gallon to start. I used to care for a 55 gallon tank, but I had no idea how much more there was to do. I started out with some kuhli loaches, a couple catfish, a tadpole, two kois and a pleco. I ended up with the two kois and pleco because of a few mistakes I made. Now I have my own tank and I am planning on getting 4 scarlet badis (if I can find them they seem pretty uncommon), 5 cherry barbs and two zebra otos (regular otos if I can't find those). I am also going to try and plant it with some water sprite, java moss and/or java fern.
My tank is currently cycling fishless and it feels like it's taking forever! Lol. My ammonia has remained at about 5ppm since I put it in 4 days ago. I know it takes time but I am super excited to get it all set up.
So I belong to another forum as well but it doesn't seem very active and it takes quite a while to get any feedback. I want to keep my tank in the best possible condition and give my fish a healthy life; I ask a lot of questions. I'm hoping this site is a little more friendly.
