Fishless Cycle Started!! New to Fishkeeping
Post Message
Woo hoo, we have fish!!  Big Grin

Went up to Wharf Aquatics, north Derbyshire (Junc 28, M1) today and purchased some fish. Our new finned friends are settling in well  Smile

We now have:

5 Danios
5 x-ray Tetras 
5 Endlers

Went for some hardy fish to begin with, but I can’t help thinking, should I have bought more?? All of that hard work to build up all that good bacteria and the tank looks a bit empty! To be fair, the LFS were great and advised against Corydoras and a few other fish I wanted until the tank is a bit more matured. Was this good advice? Should I get some more hardy fish so that the bio load is greater or should I be ok for now?

Thanks again for all of the advice so far - it’s been a great help. Well chuffed that we now have fish  Big Grin
