Hi Chimmike

Welcome to AA, and I'm afraid Kirstin is right. A "Cycle" is not the synonymous with th term "water change" and a cycle is something that occurs over 4-6 weeks (depending on several factors). I'd take back all the fish, read up on and do a fishless cycle and start your fabulous new tank off the right way to begin with.

It'll save you money and also it'll save you stress. Keep us informed!
