I got a new Marineland Pillar Tank (6 Gallons) for Christmas from my boyfriend. I told him I wanted a small tank so I could have a fighting fish (beta) and maybe a couple small bottom feeders. (no fish in there yet)
I want to do things right, so I am going to wait about a week or two after filling it to add the fish. Do you think this is the right thing to do? My fish store people tell me that I can just throw a beta right in as soon as I fill it, but I want to play it safe! I have seen "new tank syndrome" too many times when my boyfriend added new fish into his tank ...
So, I have gotten some stuff called "Stability", however I do not know how much I should add into the 6 gallons of water, as it says to add 5 ml for each 20 gallons of water. How much Stability should I add to the water in my 6 gallon tank?
Also, it says to turn off UV/Ozone when I use Stability. Does that mean just turn the lights off in the tank when I do it?
Hope everyone had a nice holiday. :-)
