Well, you talked me into it Tazz,;) lol!
We added six leopard danios today. They seem to have suffered no ill effects. My daughter thinks there are two female, four males. Three of the 'males' are frantically chasing one of the 'females' around the tank.
With this type of danio, do the males have a more golden sheen and the females a silver sheen, with a slightly plumper body? Anybody keep them?

You probably only need to test your nitrItes and ammonia at this time and this often, the KH, pH and Gh should stay pretty constant :) :thumbs:

I'd do a little water change say 10-20% the ammonia is a little high. Make sure u don't interfere with the filter and use dechlorinated water ;)

Glad to see the ammonia has come down so much! Good stuff B)

Hopefully it'll continue to decline and the nitrite will build up a little before also falling.

How long left till the fish offer ends? The cycle may take longer than anticipated...

hmm this is odd the ammonia really should be declining!! Keep up the testing though - you could get a prize for the longest cycle ever :lol:
