  1. Hi from Atlanta Georgia!! Lots of great people here to help you!
  2. Hey Jawjagrrl I’m in Georgia, too! Just a few miles south of ATL! Beautiful tank! I would love to have some type of old truck to hide in the weeds in my tank. Really like the look.
  3. Thank you so much for the advice! I’m really looking forward to the Ram cichlids, too and can’t wait till my tank is completely cycled so I can get one! How many can be kept together? One pair or what would you recommend? Thanks again for the help!
  4. Thank you! That’s such a big relief. My tank is doing so well I hated to have to disrupt it! Thank you for the assurance!! Wow! Now that you mention that, I even watched that video!! Thank you for the confirmation!
  5. Thank you! I’m beyond thrilled that they will be okay on the Eco Complete and I will definitely keep in mind adding the BD blasting sand. Might even be a reason for a future additional tank!!
  6. I’m completely fine with leaving it!! Thank you! I must have been mistaken in thinking they needed sand. Whew! I feel like I dodged an even bigger mistake and I’m glad I asked!!
  7. Hi all! I’m five weeks in on a new tank. When I was planning my planted tank I decided to go with Eco Complete instead of sand, however I completely forgot to consider the needs of the two fish that I really want!! German Blue Ram and Corydoras. I know it would be a huge task, but how bad is it going to hurt my tank and the 13 platys (see my last post about my attempt at fishless cycling) to tear the tank down and replace the substrate? Is this something I should consider or just leave it and pick different fish? Thoughts and/or suggestions please.
  8. I’m so sorry I’m just now seeing this!! Thank you so much! Thank you so much for the confirmation! It is definitely a patient process!
  9. Thank you! I will definitely do that.
  10. Thank you! I appreciate so much the confirmation of my thoughts!
  11. My tank is three weeks old today. I started out doing a fishless cycle. On Day 3, due to a very kind and sweet husband, who did NOT understand the term "fishless cycle", I was the proud owner of 13 platys! All the fish have been treated and are doing great and my plants are growing. I've attached a picture of my water parameters. I've been doing 30% water changes every four or five days and of course the ammonia goes back down. My question is: how does my tank fully cycle if I keep doing the water changes? Is it just a slower process because of the fish and having to do water changes? Thanks for any help.
