Finally I have fish!

So! i've been cycling the 10 gal for....a month and a half....lol...and today i finally got some fish for it! unfortunatley the camera doesn't have batteries... YET... so i'll get pictures soon enough. i also got a water plant. the fishies are...1 snail (the zebra striped ones), 2 oto cats, and 4 red/white/black mollies. they seem great, flourishing off the TONS of algae that'd grown in there. i think i made a fatal error though. i added all the fish at one time, and it just occured to me that doing so might shock the system i had going? i'd bought an ammonia test kit last week so i'll keep an eye on it. im SO psyched about these fish in this tank. oh man. i even forgot for 3 hours tonight that i'd gotten fish today lol and when i noticed BOY was i excited again!


oh! and my water plant is a Hydrophila polysperma

if your tank has already cycled, meaning ammonia and nitrites are 0 then its ok to add all the fish in, i have done it many times..just make sure to do weekly water changes, not to overfeed and of course monitor your water perimeters and you should be fine

Congrats I agree if your tank has cycled then it shouldn't be too much of a problem adding the fish at once especially as you haven't really added too many. I would just keep an eye on the levels
