I’m sure you are probably wondering what happened to me since I have not posted for a couple days with my parameters and what is the stage of my cycle. Unfortunately I am having a family emergency that is preventing me from taking care of my tank. Luckily I was able to find someone to keep my fish. I checked her tank. She had 0 ammonia 0 nitrites but very high nitrates. I helped her change some water. She has 75 gallon with only 2 algae eaters. I spent several hours acclimating my fish to her tank because her ph and temp were much different than mine and then popped them in. They were very stressed from being netted by a novice and the trip. At first Cheeto was diving into the gravel and glass. I turned out the lights and he relaxed. I also took my Java fern and sponge filter and the shipwreck that the neons sleep in. My husband is feeding my empty tank with a pinch of Fish food every day to hopefully keep the bacteria alive. When I can I’m going to vacuum the gravel and clean up and then check to see where I’m at in the cycle and I’ll let you know if it was able to finish without me or I will then do a fish less cycle. I’m trying to get the kids to agree to leave their fish in the big tank because I don’t know if I can catch them in that big of tank and I don’t want to stress them any more. They have been through so much already.
