    Hi Kevin, and welcome to MASA.

    Glad that you found MASA, so start reading and ask as many Q's as possible.

    That being said... If I read your thread correctly, your tank is no older than a week and you've put live stock in?

    Did you dose the tank to speed up your cycling process ( which normally takes anything from 6-8 weeks)? If so, did you check your parameters at least 3 consecutive days to ensure that tank is suitable for inhabitants?

    If this is not the case, please slow down and do not add any other live stock to your tank! it may not be ready yet!

    Did you test your water parameters? If you did, can you please list the parameters that you tested for? Especially the nitrites, nitrates, phosphates...

    I did notice on another thread that you tried to get someone to keep the livestock for you, but that you ended up keeping them in your tank anyway. Did you find that your parameters were ok after testing?

    On a more positive note, your tank looks promising for many hours of viewing pleasure!

    Cheers
