Hello tropical regions of FK, my coldwater fish sadly passed away a few days ago leaving behind a 75ltr tank. I am thinking of getting tropical fish but have no clue about them what so ever. I've checked the articles section on FK and theres nothing there which shows a "rough starting out guide".
How would I go about starting my experience with tropical fish? I have a 75ltr tank, fluval U2 filter (2months old). I have just gave my tank a full clean (washed gravel, glass and put new water in).
Like coldwater fish do you also put in tapsafe to tropical fish water? I don't understand this as the interpet tapsafe I have only mentions goldfish?
I do know I have to cycle the tank, can anyone give me an idea about the tapsafe to reduce chlorine, how long to cycle and key points I should carry out before buying the tropical fish? Thanks.
