I decided to raise tropical fish again since my parents aren’t ever going to let me get a cat. I already everything you see here since I used to raise zebra fish and some other (tetras maybe) about four years ago in my freshman dorm room. Included here is the 10 gallon tank along with the heater, filter system, thermometer, rocks, and air pump. I’ve been doing some research on fishlore.com and have learned SO much about properly raising fish. You have to let the tank go through the nitrogen cycle first before you actually put any fish in the tank or else they have a high chance of dieing or getting sick. Fish produce ammonium which is highly toxic and without cycling there is no beneficial bacteria to remove the ammonium. Cycling without fish (the more humane way to do it) can take months! Hopefully mine won’t take so long. I have to go buy some water testing kits… and a gravel cleaner.. and more plants!
Oh yeah, I’m thinking of getting neon tetras, cherry barbs, and prob a small type of catfish to eat algae.
