hey all ;D
i got a 2.5 gal tank for christmas and it's been cycling for about a week now. the water got a bit murky/cloudy after day three and i read that it means the cycle
s been complete? since it's a small tank, i figured that was about right. i gave it a couple more days and then got some molly fish. i think it's kinda crowded because i have 5 of them in there. they seem to be doing fine though...
as far as equipment goes, my tank came with a filter and a water prep solution. i also got a thermometer. i wanted an air pump but i thought it wasnt necessary since it's a small tank. the problem i have is keeping the water temperature stable at night because it goes down a bit. should i get a water heater?
*im planning on gettin at least a 20 gal tank to move them in.. and just use the small one for the fry. im still new at this so opinions would be helpful. thanks guys!
