    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!


    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.

    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.

    Of course!

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

    All males :) Thanks.

    I had this lucky find at PetSmart, picked up 3 of them, acclamating now...

    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.
