Do you know about the nitrogen cycle (click the link!)? Is your tank cycled? How long have you had it set up, and how did you cycle it?

It's better for the fish to cycle your tank before you add them

After you cycle it, you have lots of options for stocking! What kind of fish were you thinking of? A few big, many small, particular colors or behaviors?

I am not sure what your talking about ..... My levels were all normal!

I really like rainbow fish and angel fish but other than that not really sure!!! Really excited but I don't really know which route to go!

We have a tester kit! My kiddo has a smaller tank so between both tanks we bought a large kit to test them with! .....

I love Angels but what can you put with them?




Maybe our nitrogen is off because the shade was a little off but not significantly!! (....maybe I need to buy some cheap for tomorrow!!)

You don't measure nitrogen directly with the test kits. What are you buying for cheap tomorrow? What were the test results?

Take a look at the links provided by Brandon and myself (links go to the same page). They should explain the nitrogen cycle and what the test kits are measuring (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates).
