Question
ammonia
ammonia  
Ammonia 0.02 is that a reason to be concerned should I be doing a water change. I am 3 weeks into my cycling process. I have a 29 gallon tank. I am cycling a tank with 4 neon tetras and 4 glofish. I was told that these fish are not hardy fish, but I figured that 8 fish would be enough. I do weekly water changes while I'm cycling, figured it would not harm or ruin my cycling process figured it's good to get into the habit of doing it. thank you for your time and again this is the best website ever! you guys are the ones who make it the best website ever

Answer
I suggest a partial water change and buying a Product called Seachem Prime. It will nullify the deadly toxins that are going through the cycle and protect the fish from being burned or stressed by the Ammonia, Nitrites, and Nitrates AND on top of this is declorinates the water for you.

Your tank looks great by the way.

Expertise

My knowledge of fish ranges from freshwater and saltwater fish compatibility and care from easy livebearers to monster fish. I can help you set up a simple freshwater aquarium to a complicated reef tank. I would be pleased to assist anyone who is new to the aquarium hobby.

Experience

I have been in the aquarium hobby for eight years mostly dealing with large and small aquariums. I keep mostly monster fish (Arowana's, Large Cichlids; Oscars, and freshwater/saltwater eels specifically) but now that I am in college I am keeping a 30 gallon tropical community and a 45 gallon brackish aquarium while my father tends to the big monsters I left behind.

Organizations
I'm on YouTube! My 30 gallon community posts are the only ones that are up so far. My Brackish tank is next! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3gedHZNmWY28o0-o40nEpA/videos?view=0&flow=grid I'm on Yahoo Answers: http://answers.yahoo.com/my-activity

Education/Credentials
I am currently in college aiming for a job in Marine Biology.
