    Thanks Dawn! I’m quite fond of them.

    I'm obsessed with my new babes. IMG_0563.TRIM.MOV
  3. Thanks a lot! Quick question... when it says to ensure that salt is at the appropriate concentration, what does that mean? Can I use PraziPro without salt? I am still trying to figure out how to dissolve it and using my Python...
  4. Thanks, Koko! I’m on mobile right now. Can you direct me to the Prazi treatment recommendations? They are both yawning now semi-frequently but everything else seems just peachy. Boy, I missed having goldies!
  5. They both came from the same stock tank. Do you think it would be advisable to do a round of Prazi? I’ve noticed the orange one ‘yawning’ a bit.
  6. Hi everyone! I am happy to report that this finally happened.
  7. Today I am at: Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 (!!!) Nitrate: Approx. 3 ppm. Safe to say I'm cycled?
  8. So the nitrates seem to have gone down to more normal levels. Shall I just continue the water changes when they get too high? Aug 15: Ammonia 0.25, Nitates 2.0, Nitrates 10-20

    Star is absolutely gorgeous.
  10. In progress. Mid-cycle and rooting stages ☺️ Might be able to do some fish shopping in time for my birthday at the end of the month?! Crossing my fingers 😉
  11. I did a 70% wc today. I will test again tomorrow night and see if that had any impact.
  12. Thank you. Should I do a 50% change now then? Why would removing some speed up the process?
  13. Thanks - this makes me feel a little better! I had a feeling it was normal, but something in the back of my mind wasn’t sitting well. I had obtained a small amount of used media from a fish store, and I also supplemented with a bottled bacteria product the first three days. I have also noticed some filamentous white algae/fungus growing on my wood. I think this is also normal? I’m just letting it do its thing so I haven’t removed anything. I think this will clear up over time?
  14. Hi all, I am in the process of cycling my 75 gallon (fishless). I did a water test last night and my nitrites are extremely dark purple, possibly over 5.0 ppm. I am using the API Master Freshwater test kit with liquid drops. So far my water parameters are: Aug 4: Ammonia 0.25, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5, pH 8.0 Aug 11: Ammonia 0.25, Nitrite + 5.0, Nitrate 20 I have heard that a spike in nitrites can delay/destroy a cycle. I have also noticed the water is becoming faintly cloudy, however I know this is normal. The tank has been running for about a month and cycling for two weeks. Any thoughts on what I should do?
