    Hi everyone. I just got back into the hobby after about 1 year absence. I had a salt water tankfor 5 years, until all of the inhabitants went to the big fish pond in the sky.
    I am currently on a 29 gallon eclipse set up with hopes of upgrading in the near future to at least a 60 gallon.

    I am in my 3rd week of cycling and am getting the following readings:

    12/05/10
    ph 7.6
    high range ph of 8
    .25ppm ammonia
    5ppm nitrite
    20ppm nitrate

    12/12/10
    ph 7.6
    high range ph of 8
    0ppm ammonia
    .25ppm nitrite
    10ppm nitrate

    Other than weekly water changes, the only other things I did was add Tetra Safe start and just recently, Cycle. Cycle seems to have made a bit of a difference in speeding up the cycle. I will do another water change today and hope that if all goes well, I will add a fish or two next Saturday. (If the test come out well). Is this a good plan?How are my readings?

    I am not sure which fish to put in yet but based on my PH, I was leaning towards Africans although I still want a community tank. any recommendations?

    Well thanks in advance for any help. I don’t entirely trust my LFS so I would rather ask the real experts.

    Personally I wouldn’t let pH bias fish selection without knowing some other parameters. Do you know your gH and kH?

    Your readings look ok based on the stage of cycling you’re at. <img src="style_emoticons//smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />
