I'm new here but I've had a tank for about 2 years. I have visited this site a lot and found answers to my questions, but now I think it's time I joined. We recently moved and had to leave my tank behind. I had a 30 gal
but when we moved I temporarily put my remaining fish in a 10 gal
. Now we just bought a 65 gal
with an external filter. It's really nice.
I used some live bacteria to cycle the tank and my fish appear to be doing well. I was told I could just add the bacteria and put my fish in right away and do everything as normal. I still waited a day to add my fish. Later I went back to the same Lfs
and a different guy told me that the tank would still go through a cycling period and that I should wait a month before adding more fish and I should underfeed my fish for that period. Why can't I ever get a straight answer from a Lfs
and why do they always talk to me like I'm an idiot? I ask a lot if questions sometimes I even ask the same question more than once to different people. Good thing because I almost always get a different answer. I figured why not ask the questions on a forum, then I can get all the different answers and opinions, but I only have to ask the question once
