    I just bought my first ever fish - six zebra danios - and am very pleased at officially becoming a tropical fish owner. Just thought I'd share how happy I'm feeling :)

    Yes, I'm using them to cycle with because I've only had the tank for two weeks.

    Congratulations! I know the feeling when you get some new fishies :) But just be careful with your water parameters now, because you had no fish before in your 8 gallon tank and there are probably not enough bacteria to support all 6 fish's wastes. You'll probably have to do frequent water changes to remove nitrite (and/or ammonia) which can possibly rise with the addition of 6 fish at once.
