Yes, if it was set up at Christmas it won't be cycled. It takes 4-8 weeks to cycle a tank.

On a more serious note...you'll want to make sure it's cycled so all your fry doesn't die. We wouldn't want that

I know, I was just wondering what they think cycling is. They could have gotten filter media from a friend or family member even though I highly doubt it.

Sounds dodgy....but if it works for you that's good. I would do partial water changes just to be sure. Good luck to you with your new fishies!

Most of those 'substances' don't do squat unfortunately. You really need to get your water tested with a liquid test kit and find out the numbers.

The water was 'perfect' because there was not ammonia in the tank yet (no fish). Please get your water tested again with a liquid test and find out the numbers. Please read the guides linked. We are not trying to pick on you or prove you wrong we just want to help you.

So you added ammonia then fish that produce ammonia? Too much ammonia = burnt gills, burnt & frayed fins and death.

Hello do you have a test kit, I lost so many guppies because I wasn't aware of the need to monitor the water. I have honestly found that the LFS are not the most reliable. Good luck with yr fry!

Hey, as I said we are just trying to help. You tank IS CYCLING. Your fish are most likely swimming in high ammonia. I see you have a bacteria bloom. That's another sign it is cycling. You can choose to follow advise if you wish. That is entirely up to you. Just read the guide and you WILL understand what we mean.

That's not really something you want to be saying on a site full of passionate people. No fish should be left to suffer and die from ammonia poisoning. What we are trying to tell you is a tank CAN be cycled with fish in it WITHOUT harming the fish.
