Hello everyone! After over 8 weeks of cycling my 10 gal tank and not getting anywhere, and also dealing with sick fish, I am re cycling my 10 gallon tank that occupies 1 female betta and 2 nerite snails! (so keep in mind this is a fish-in cycle)
I do not want to go over the time I wasted trying to cycle the first time, so I'm going to take baby steps and hopefully someone on here can guide me through it? :) I'd like to update this thread with my readings and hopefully some experienced members can tell me if/when to do a water change and how much of a water change. :)
Tank started: 7/7/2012. Some tetra safe start was also added. I use the API liquid freshwater master test kit. :)
As of today, 7/12/2012..
Do you think a change is needed or should I let the ammonia go up a Teeney bit more? Thanks everyone! :)
