Greetings to all!
Once again I have learned soooooo much on these forums that I doubt I would ever have lasted this far because once learning of the cycle process I was freaking out 8O until I found that it's NORMAL....
I have a 29 gal fw
tank with 1 cherry barb, 1 rosy barb, 2 guppies and 1 molly. I'm in my 8th week and still haven't completely cycled yet
but I know, patience, patience, patience.....
I wanted to know what is normal when you rinse the filter (white mesh looking thingee inside box). It seems that no matter what I do it the water looks icky
It has things floating thru the water like little white linty stuff.....is this normal?
Also, I had the nasty brown algae this time on my back pane and cleaned it off and it also made the water yucky...I guess it will clear up ????
Thanks in advance for any information you can give me on this...I am going to check my water to see where I am at in the cycle process in a few hours as before the water change my nitrItes were still alittle high. If need to I'll get back with more questions.
Have a Happy :P
