Hello everyone I’m very new on here but I’ve read many of the forums. I REALLY need your help I purchased a 75 gallon aquarium with a forza hob filter from my local pet supply store. Now I had a tank when I was too young to understand the cycle part of it so I’m completely new to CYCLING aquariums. My wife fell in love with the cichlids they had and wanted 4 cichlids and 3 black neon tetras and the person recommended to do a fish in cycle with these 7 fish now here we are two weeks later and 2 cichlids and 1 tetra died. My ammonia is at 8ppm my nitrites are at 0 and my nitrates are 20ppm. Two days ago I did a 50% water change and even added amquel which I was told was beneficial bacteria in a bottle and my ammonia still keeps staying at a steady 6ppm. Is this normal for the cycle or am I doing something wrong?
