    A while ago, I was cycled, but I wasn't allowed to get fish in it (don't ask :)). But, now I'm FULLY cycled, at last, and my dad says I can put fish in. YAY!

    Questions:

    My stocking is 3 endlers, 4 guppies, and shrimp. Shrimp last, of course. What order shall I stock?

    I have no ammonia or nitrites now, so will my media be okay 9 hours while I'm out until i get to Petsmart later today?

    Yep, it’ll be fine until 48 hours without any fish.

    Thanks!

    Would it be okay to add a mystery snail today, or should I wait until after the tank has established a little? It's fine if not :)

    You can add anything you desire, as long as you’ve done the water change to lower the nitrates.

    Are you getting all males? If not - what plan do you have for the babies? Enjoy your new fish!

    I’m watching them, and one seems to be picking at the others. They are still in the bag, will it get better when I release them? I bought a breeder box, just in case.
