good luck! :D

I did a fish-in cycle 3 times already, so it seems like that's what works best for me. Knocked the ammonia down to 0 in only about 2 weeks the first time :) I think I might do a fish-out cycle fr my next tank project.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Yeah I bet you can't! I'm home-schooled currently but I take classes at different schools so I wake up fairly early... Because the sooner I''m done, the better! lol But I can't wait to just be able to relax and not have to worry about being knee deep in work studying for my finals tests! lol
