I was worried though the entire time and Perseus was like oh no big deal bring on the water changes mom I love them..lol And he does he loved when I would pour the water in he would get right under it so he could swirl around and around...lololol He also loves to follow the gravel vac around so I had to be extra careful and keep an eye on where he was when I used it and still do . I would not do another fish in cycle though just cause of I would be worried the entire time and also I had a big power outage during it that really messed things up and it was like I had to start over and so did the cycle.
So that being said no horror story but yeah do a fishless cycle..lol How is Raz has he eaten yet ?
Aww Perseus sounds like such a character! Cute! Well I'm happy it all worked out. That master kit is awesome. I used it yesterday for the first and it was so easy and accurate. Yay! I need to get a gravel vac though. Do you rec a certain one?
Well he is more active since I turned off the filter. I wonder why? I see him all over the tank and on top a lot more. I tried the garlic dipped pellets and he didn't even look at it. *sigh* I was going to try and buy the New Life Spectrum pellet food you suggested and see if he will eat that. Other then him not eating he looks and acts very healthy.
