Meet buddy 😀

Day 1 The tank is placed on a board to ensure its on a flat surface. The substrate is put in 1st and then we fill the tank with tap water. Some aquascape the tank before filling but I’ve decided to do that after the cycle. Cycling the tank is very important, by running the filter and letting beneficial bacteria grow within the tank and filter. Water is dechlorinated and I also use API Quickstart to speed up the cycling process(though I still wait a few weeks before introducing any fish). Next is to rehydrate with watermelons and making sure the office cat does not do anything mischievous. #fishtank #api #fluval #fishhobby #communitytank #fisharefriendsnotfood #sleepingcat
