...if people don't like me or I'm just not doing this right but I need some help if you can provide it. I need to get a 10 gallon QT going. And I need to get a fish in there asap. So my question is what do I need to do? Like with cycling and using water from the main tank...things like this. What I do know is that I need to make it comfortable for them with substate and hiding places but not over doing it. A basic sponge filter is good because carbon and medicine don't mix. So....I know I need it to get to temp and pH balanced and what not. But do I need to worry about cycling? Because if I understand right any antibiotic will kill the good bacteria anyway. Maybe no one responds to my posts because I don't make them short enough? Please help with this one guys. I lost one gill baby today. I don't want to lose anymore.
