Say Hello to Claire

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...asct1294845002

just got her tonight. 25 shipped is the best deal i found thus far. there are cheaper ones but this one really caught my eye. look at the beautiful blue crowntail. so bright and vivid. i really hate to mate her with my walmart fish Leon, but i think i should.

all I'm going to say is you should have a properly cycled tank set up before you buy fish, you're going too fast!

I did a fish-in cycle with my first two girls, I don't see why it's a problem.

Very nice fish OP! Though...if you don't want to breed, you really don't have to...

yeah i know i dont have to breed right now. i am going to keep them in seperate tanks and do more research before i set it up. i can breed them later right? as for a cycled tank, isn't that what water conditioner does or am i wrong?

Yeah, breeding takes a lot of time and effort, so it's better to delve into it when you have more experience and confidence in fish keeping.

Conditioner is just used to remove harmful chlorine and cholormine from the water. It doesn't cycle your tank.

i am reading on cycling. can i just use regular ammonia and add small amounts of it? will that finish it?

anyone got a good tutorial for an easy way to cycle the tank? i wont be getting live plants anytime soon i dont think. do i need live plants to cycle the tank?

If you are doing fish in cycling - you don't need ammonia - your fish add that.
