Hello all, my names tyler and im probably a youngster in this fourm, 14. I may be young but I have owned many fish tanks, from a betta bowl, to a betts tank with shrimp and an upsidedown catfish, to a 10 gal
guppie tank, to a 29 gal
community with neon tetras, tiger barbs, bushynose pleco, baby rainbow shark, 3 apple snails, and baby angelfish. I have recently got a free 30 gal
high from a friend, i say high because it is 14in wide, 20-25in tall and 30-36in long. It had a light and a bio wheel 170 filter. I got some gravel, decorations, filter cartridges, new lightbulb, new lid, food, de chlorination liquid, and 5 feeder platies to cycle. I know, i know fishless is the best! But i hate adding chemicals to a tank and doing a un natural fish cycle. Anyways, i dont have a heater, nor will i have one until tomorrow. I wont have a testing kit till friday, or if i beg and beg and beg a cheap one tomorrow. So far all the fish are alive, its been 4 days and everythings doing good, doing 25% PWC
's every other day unless the fish get reddened gills or act strange. What do you guys think??? as for fish later on, i want a angelfish or two, a bushynose pleco, possibly some longfin rosy barbs, some cories, and snails. I want some schooling fish but have has neon tets before, looking for a change. Sorry this is so long but thanks!!!
