Hi everyone. My questions are a little bit complex and I am looking for the best advice on what to do next. If you've been following I had three bettas one died yesterday...
Anyhow, I have the other two on that number 2 marycn stuff and they aren't in the tank anymore. I let the cycling start over, well at least I have tried to. I have the tank on marcyn one and two because the one who had the fungus and the one with the bacterial infection were both in the same tank (it's a ten gallon divided) right now, I have some tetras cycling for me.
Well, I was curious as to what to do with the cycling... I am getting some of that bacteria stuff in the mail soon. But do I need to change all of the water after the antibiodics are done? Do I need to have the bio filter in to do cycling? Do I start over when the antibiodics are over with all new water etc. I am not really sure. And then when should i begin to put the fish back into the tank? (two bettas)... I really have no idea how to cycle. My ammonia started at zero. two days ago it was .25 ppm (that is when i had the betta and the neons in) today it was .5 ppm so I took the betta out (he's pissed about it) because I thought it might be rising too fast to keep him in. My high PH has stayed at 7.4, the regular is at 7.2 and nitrates and nitrites are both 0.
Am I doing this all wrong? Please help, thanks!
