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 wasn't 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?
*I'm planning on gettin at least a 20 gal tank to move them in.. and just use the small one for the fry. I'm still new at this so opinions would be helpful. thanks guys!
