I recently started an aquarium again. A small one, 10 gallons, for my son who just turned two. I had a bigger one before and so did my wife but neither of us were really ever big aquarium/fish people. So, this time I decided I'd do it right and read up on how to setup an aquarium. You can sure find everything you need to know on the internet. Who says the internet is only good for porn and shopping? Anyway, its been seven weeks and my aquarium is finally cycled and at equilibrium. Low ammonia, low nitrite, medium level of nitrate and a pH of 7.0 with no casualties including the starter fish. Its actually nice to know that it isn't likely that I'll have fish die and not know why given that I have 4 different testers for the water and lot more knowledge about what to look for and to care for. For reference, the tank is basically full now and I have: 1 Zebra Danio 2 Red Eye Tetras (along with the zebras these were the starter fish) 2 Albino Corydoras 2 Dwarf Gouramis 1 Celebes Rainbow 3 little Neon Tetras It sure is relaxing to watch them swim around.
