i have been letting my 20 gallon tank sit for 3.5 days so far. can i get my fish today?
yes that would be great!As others have said it will be best to research the nitrogen cycle and look into doing a fishless cycle.
You will also have to change what you’re planning to stock with as an angel and a pleco cannot fit in a 20gal.
If you would like we can throw up some better stocking options
i have no plants and i want to add a school or 2Not until you have 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite and 20 or under nitrate. I know waiting is hard but everyone will tell you that if you do this right, you'll avoid a lot of trouble down the road. What has been your method to cycle?
Do you have plants in your tank? Post a pic of your setup if you would.
What number and species of livestock will you be adding once it's cycled?
