    Thanks for the info.I thought that I knew what ''Cycling''meant since I ran a bicycle shop for many years.Now I do understand it is not at all like what I thought it was going to be before I read this here. I had fish many years ago but have not had them now for many years,so it is like starting over in many ways.Manok

    Hey, I’m doing a Fish in cycling, started a week ago, put some media from my 20 gallon tank in, did a 30% water change this morning, anything else I should be doing other than testing?

    Not really. Keep monitoring the levels and do water changes if they are needed. I assume you did the 30% because of some "bad" test results?

    Mainly because the aquarium was cloudy, and one of my gouramis kept sitting at the bottom of the Aquarium, now he: she is more active.
