    :;hi2Welcome to Fish Lore! Take advantage of the info you can acquire here, it's second to none.
    I did notice that you do not know about the nitrogen cycle according to your profile, please do plug it into the search and do some reading, since you have added fish already, you will be needing to do daily water changes to keep them comfortable...for about a month (yes the cycle takes a while) please don't add any more fish yet!
    I would suggest getting Prime for your water conditioner, and the liquid test kit by API.
    Stop using Cycle! It contains the wrong type of bacteria (that is why it states to add it every week for the life of your tank) Daily water changes with Prime will get things going and keep it makes the water good for 24hrs but the ammonia is still available for the bacteria to feed on.
    Good luck, be patient and enjoy!

    It seems like you have quite a few fish for a 25 liter (around 6 gallon) tank. Try this site to see how many and what types of fish you can keep.
