Morning,
And thank you for the warm welcome.
Stocking list....lol.
Too many I would choose as I love Harlequins, neon's & Cory's.
Had a great success with Leopard Danio's & BETA years ago.
So for me introduce the top three on a weekly basis, slowly mind lol.
8 Neons, 5 Harlequins & 3 Cory's.
And see if the tank, plants and the fish are ok before I venture in more.
Ohhhh I like your tanks! Batman snails....me likes!! HAHA!

As usual anything can change in my list.

GL know how my tiny brains works, sometimes ok...other times info overload.
I think I've analysed my water test this morning too much and my brain is like mush!
Ok, started getting Nitrites measurements.

Ammonia 3-4PPM
Nitrites 0.25PPM.

Any help be appreciated.
Apart from the low temp, (new heater ordered) all good in the tank.

Looks like the cycle is progressing nicely. Wait for the ammonia to drop to zero or very close to it then redose to 2ppm Keep doing that each time it gets to zero. Nitrite will continue to rise then suddenly it will drop. After you have zero ammonia and nitrite after 24 hours for 3-4 days in a row you’re cycled Smile all you’ll have to do then is a massive water change (as much as you can) then you can add fishies Smile
