I have had my tank for 2 weeks. I got the "freshwater master test kit" today and did my first tests. The ph was at 7.2 the nitrates were at 0 the nitrites were at 0 and the high ph was between 7.4 and 7.8. Ok I think that is good, from what I understand from the booklet. I don't know how to tell though when my tank is done "cycling". When I do my first water change can I leave the fish in there, or do I need to take them out? And do I want to get a hose cyphoning kit? So many questions....hopefully someone with more knowledge than me will be able to help !!!
