    Nearly there.

    What are you planning on keeping in there mrs T.A?

    A ph of 8 might suggest africans maybe?

    What size is the tank?

    sorry mick should have given more info.... tank juwel rekord 96 home to 2 guppie 1 black molly 1 swordtail and a platy
    tank had been cycling in disasterous curcumstances ie bad info, week after initial set up, by lfs came on here worried as 1 by 1 initial 10 lifestock slowly wittled down to 5 understandably ph seemed to settle at 7.4-7.6 nitrite was 0 am o.25 nitrate 10 so all in all after 4 weeks i was almost there
    then site crashed temp and i did something stupid after reading my book had a article of regular maintenance and monthly it said to change white filter pad u guessed it i did and now cycling again:(
    after plankton explained that he hadn't changed nowt for 10 yrs i wont be doing that again
    wish list i had hoped on an unusual breed of limozine gourami x2 and serbai cory x3 female gupps for the males x5

    living in hope amanda x

    Limozine gourami thats a new one for me. I've only heard of a licorice gourami but the other tankmates should be fine.

    Are you talking about the small white filter pad on the top of your filter? on top of the rest of your media? Changing that is hardly likely to start the cycle all over again is it? Is it possible that the cycle just hasn't finished?

    Oh, I thought you meant.....I only rinse out the polypad, use it for at least 2 months (until it starts breaking down). No point in throwing money away! (I should've been a Scot or a Yorkshireman I think ;) )
