Ya my cousin suggested the cycle problem. He seemed to just have the wait it out idea. He has had numerous fresh and salt water tanks so he's pretty reliable. What would be my solution to this. I know for salt water they have bacteria you can add when starting a tank would fresh water have the same product and would it be beneficial in this situation or stick with the wait it out idea.
Also with the Dempsey going against the glass like it sees another one, should I add a male Dempsey to the tank for her?
I am still rather new to this and have been reading as much as I can but I'm sure you all have noticed nothing is set in stone when it comes to fish.
