Hi Guys

New to the forum wanted to introduce myself. I just set up my first tropical tank it's a 75 gallon with a juvenile tiger Oscar and two convicts. I have a few general questions just wanted to wait to ask to make sure this is the right area to post.

I have some questions on cycling. I have had the new tank running for three weeks and have had my cichlids in it for about two of them. I used API quick start to kick start the cycle but had little results in water testing after introducing my fish. I got a different bacteria fritzs 7 I believe it's called and that worked great. I am currently at zero ammonia and registering nitrates but have had fairly high nitrites. Is this what is called the second part of the cycle or should I be doing something else to reduce the nitrite. all three fish are eating and seem healthy but I know how deadly nitrite can be. Also I don't have exact water parameters currently but I test every other day using an API master test kit.

2 Oscars, they are large. Lately they spend a lot of time together, rubbing against each other. I would put a picture of my set up but not sure how.

Welcome to OFL. Pics are best posted thru Photobucket. Its free to use. Copy the img code of the pic and paste directly into the forum thread box. Video is best via YouTube. Look forward to seeing your Oscars!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

if those pictures in my signature can give you some ideas, please throw the question...
rubbing against each other body is a good sign... but will not be a basis for pair up!
