Karen B. Posted January 4, 2022 Share Posted January 4, 2022 I had to leave for 2 weeks & a friend of mine came regularly to check on the fish. One of the feeder malfunctionned and emptied a lot of food in the tank - It looks like it snowed in the tank! 🤪 I was using the 10 gallons tank to quarantine 5 chili Rasboras and their time was done so my friend just moved the fish away. I am back home. To my biggest surprise, the parameters are fine, no ammonia. I still removed all the decor and plants and syphonned (way too much) about 95% of the water. Yet there is still debris but I am ok with it - will help fertilize the plants/bacteria. I also serviced the HOB filter and the air sponge filter (so I did everything people say not to) in the aquarium water. I filled it back, put the plants and decor back. My problem is that I learned I am getting my 12 new chili Rasboras in a few hours. As its my quarantine tank, they are meant to go there. But I am afraid I may have messed up my cycle or that it won’t be able to keep up once I add the trio meds/fish. I treat my water with prime and stability. I will be using the aquarium coop trio med. I also have a bottle of fritz 7. I plan on adding the fish, the med trio and test everyday. Should I use the fritz 7 right away no matter what or just wait and see what happens? Any other advice or ideas to make sure I don’t kill my fish in quarantine because of my dodgy cycle? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
