Stores/Breeders in the Southwest Suburbs

7 years 7 months ago #34009 by pmsmith2032
Thanks for the advice! I do have a couple of other questions:

1. Is there anything special I need to do to "treat" the tank be fore I set it up? I bought it used and have no idea what the previous owner had in it (besides knowing he used it for fish).

2. I have a small 3 gallon tank. Can I use a little of the water from it and the used cartridge filter (it has a small hob filter) to cycle the tank water? The small tank has three glow fish in it and needs to be cleaned (algae).

Thanks in advance!

Didn't mean to imply anything but the original post seemed to imply he was asking for suggestions that was mine for that area. He can also try Craigslist.com, aquabid.com but that seemed like too general of an answer.

Absolutely. I am still in the planning stage but just wanted to get an idea of where I might be able to obtain fish/advice when the time comes.

Make sure you cycle the tank first.

I am brand new to African Cichlids, am just getting ready to setup a 55 gallon tank for the first time and am looking for stores/breeders in the far southwest suburbs (Yorkville). Thanks!
