    New Here

    The last time I cycled a tank was a few years ago with my 55g. I initially took some media out of my 90 to jump start it but I forgot to add dechlorinator into the tank which killed off whatever I had added from the 90. So I just let it sit for a month, added some food and it was ready in a...

    Having My Parents Take Over

    If it were me I would treat this situation as a vacation mode. Don't feed the fish. Do a feeding and a large water change before your surgery, like 2 days before and go on vacation mode. It will be tough since your not on vacation but it will make it easier on your parents, less pressure too.

    55gal Stand Only Touching On Sides

    Since this is a framed tank, as long as all four corners are touching you should be fine. It looks like you added shim's in the middle, which is fine. If there was a gap in one of the three corners that would more of a concern.

    Help Helping A Friend Stock A 20 H

    Almost 100% Stocked

    If you fell your tank is in perfect harmony I wouldn't add anything else. Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing and in your case if everybody is happy you should just enjoy the tank.
