    Hi all,

    i just noticed my tetras are swiming chasing each other, is that normal?

    I've watched them dozens of time and this is the first time i've see them behaved like this.

    There also afffecting my white clouds as i've noticed one of my white clouds is chasing the rest of the group.

    It is probably no big deal, they seem to have plenty of room... What are your test results? Just curious, since you say the tanks only been running a couple of weeks. If the readings are not as good as they could be, they might be stressed

    There are my test results

    No3= 0 ppm
    No2=0 ppm
    Hardness= 50 ppm
    Total Alkalinity/Buffing capacity=0 ppm
    Ph= 6.8
    Amonia= hard to determine

    I've been trying to find out what my amonia is at but it keeps on giving me a reading of somewhere around 0 ppm - 0.6 ppm

    I then tested my tap water and got the same results as my aquarium.

    I beleve so, i had the tank runing for about a week before i added my white clouds, nitrates where present then,

    I then addded my white clouds after my nitrates and amonia went to zero.

    I also noticed something one of my white clouds has a purple like dot on its right side, is something vary serious happening in my tank?

    all post a picture if i can.

    Get a picture for sure. IT sounds like you are going to be doing a 6-8 week fish cycle. Do you know about this, and what to do?
