I'm think I am about to give up the hobby after three months. Cycling was stressful, but it was rewarding when I put our first fish in when the levels got right. I had a couple of weeks after being fully stocked until I watched 15 fish die in one day. I've done frequent water changes, check parameters every other day, but still managed to get Ick in my tank. I wanted to have a tank for enjoyment and relaxation, but now I can't sleep wondering what I am going to wake up to tomorrow. It's been a very heartbreaking and discouraging. I knew it was going to be a lot of work. I accepted that and enjoyed taking care of my fish. Despite my best efforts, I failed. Does it ever get easier?
