Hey hey hey c'mon... I was told many times not to rush into anything... Just passing the advice on. It's very easy to get ahead of yourself in this hobby!

+10 on this. Watch your parameters closely and be prepared to do water changes. Your tank should be cycled but I tend to err on the side of caution. Beautiful fish BTW.

Lol.. This is funny cus when I read stroke originally, I didn't exactly know what you meant lol lol... But I digress. To Sonoma- strokes and promiscuity aside, it's better to be patient with this hobby than to have your system crash. No fun when that happens!

always easy to say no to the wife

but when it comes to the lil one who can say no

it's all good as long as you keep on it but if I remember right wasn't it almost finished anyhow

that water change may have helped you finish the cycle

Did I just say that
