Okay. So I'm having a really big problem here. Bought my tank and set it up early Monday morning (1am) and now it has begun to turn cloudy. I haven't cycled it and didn't really think much of it because I was so excited about giving Waffle, Wartooth, and Slayer their new expanded homes!
So I feel as if ammonia has taken over. I don't have a test kit because I live in the middle of nowhere with no Walmarts close by or fish stores. I had to drive an hour and 15 minutes to pick up a fish tank and supplies. Gas prices has went up which is causing me to stress.
So how do I go about this problem? I started doing 25% water changes last night. My tank is a heated 10 gallon that is holding about 8 gallons right now due to dividers and such. My fish are acting normal, eating, swimming, etc. But I'm keeping a very close eye on them.
Also, I need a gravel vacuum. Does anyone know any substitutes to vacuum the excess waste? ;(
What should I do?
