Hello! Someone added a similar post that I looked through, but I want to add to it. First, I’ve had my 10 G tank for months now. I bought it, ran it 24 hours, bought 2 neons, a snail, and a ghost shrimp. They started dying, I found this forum, learned about cycling, and I began cycling with fish. A friend gave me three baby, what she called Mickey Mouse Fish (guppies). They lived about a week or so, and then all died. I worried there was a parasite, because they were stringy, but advice here told me just to add ammonia and cycle the tank. So, I did. I ran it awhile, did a half change, and then was on vacation for a week and a half. I tested yesterday and ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates were all low. So I did a 20-25% change. I’m hoping that tomorrow I may find levels of 0, finally....if not, I don’t know how to ever get this tank fully cycled... Anyway, to the question, when I finally get levels of 0, what 2-4 fish should I start with that can just sit in their bag, in the water for an hour or so, and then be added. I was looking at the similar post, and someone had said neon tetras, but when I clicked, the advice said something about having a separate tank/area...I don’t know how to do that, so I’d like fish that are easy to introduce. I’m thinking maybe a beta, or maybe wait until I know smaller/less expensive fish are doing okay? Thank you!
