  1. Unfortunately i dont Have another tank or access to media . I am Using seachem prime . As my conditioner . I think Initially i overdosed And my second time trying after a water change and lower ammonia levels i added Bacteria but not enough ammonia for them to feed on . I now Have my tank dosed to around 4 ppm and am using seachem stability every day
  2. Need help with fishless cycle . Started a month ago using ammonia . Overdosed my tank to almost 8ppm with no activity whatsoever . After about two weeks with nothing going on i consulted a lfs employee . They told be to do a large water change to get my ammonia to about 2.5 ppm . I got myself down to that level after a water change and added dr tims one and only to hopefully get something going on . It’s now been another week and ammonia is still at 2.5 and no readings for nitrite . I just bought some seachem stability and am thinking of staring to use that . Do i meed to add ammonia during this process ? Should i have a higher ammonia level or is 2.5 to low to get this started . Please help !

    I was going to buy a 24” Finnex stingray led light . And just leave it topless . I tried buying a hinged glass top but it didn’t fit . The tank i have Is super cheap . Grreat choice is the brand I guess the measurements were off by very little

After researching and buying different things and throwing out the junk that came with this aquarium kit i figured The lighting was also garbage

    Thanks for responding , I’m planning on keeping this tank for 8 months or so just wasn’t sure if the cheap plastic hood with the strip of leds that came with the tank were going to be sufficient . I’ve been getting really into this and of course I’ve been spending a ton of money haha .

  13. Hey there ! New to fishkeeping currently cycling my tank in prep for a goldfish . It’s a 20 tall . I have A piece of spider wood i tied Some java fern on and some Anubias . I only have the hood and less my aquarium came with but i plan To take it off and have no top . Been looking at different lights and don’t know what direction to go . I’d like to maybe add some more plants in the future but nothing crazy ! Not looking to spend 200 dollars . Wondering if the Finnex and nicrew lights around 40 bucks are worth it
