Im nervous! ARGH! Very, very nervous for this. I just divided my 5gallon Marineland Hex with Neelie's divider tutorial :D Im waiting the two days for the sealant to set.
Im gonna cycle it with my two boys in as the ammonia providers.
I still have lots to read up on about it. Does anyone have a good, reliable site that can give me easy to follow directions? I know there is a sticky, which I read, but it didnt tell me enough.
Also, I bought a water testing kit at Petsmart today for it. The manager (who seemed to acually have a brain and care! WHAT A MIRACLE! lol) I got Jungle's Quick Dip Complete, its strips, 25 that test ammonia and 25 that test nitrate, nitrite, hardness, chlorine, alkalinity, pH and ammonia.
Any tips for what to look for ideally, and what can hurt my boys?
He advised me to get Bacteria supplement, too, because I couldnt afford the $20 "cycle" stuff :C Is this good stuff?
My tank has a "bio wheel" in it, too. Good stuff, yes? I hopes?
SO CONFUSED AND SKJdl;ajsdfkshdklghasdjf
Sooo yeah. What do you think? And any tips or good sites?
