I have 2 shubunkins and 2 fancy tail goldfish....I had to put them in this tank because my pond isn't deep enough for them to make it out there and I could only afford a 10 gallon tank at the time, although now my husband says I should've bought a bigger one. I feed them twice a day with floating pellets that way there are no flakes sinking to the bottom.
There's no direct sunlight hitting it, just the light in the tank---I haven't been turning it on quite as much the past few days.
Loz, it will take at least 6-8 weeks for a tank to cycle. It sounds like you have an algae bloom in your tank. Do you have any kind of algae eater in there? (Pleco) If the green continues- get some Accu-clear or similar product(specifically for water "blooms" not just for algae on the glass of the tank)
Thanks Tonya, I don't have an algae eater....I guess next time I'm in Walmart I'll have to get one.
Most things I've been reading lately say if you have an algae problem you just need to be really consistent with water changes and wait for the cycle period to end....so that's what I've been doing.
I need to get some batteries, then I'll post a pic.
