New Tank Set-Up

Postby krichardsonn » Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:29 am


I have just set up my new tank last night (110 litres).

The brand is Juwel Primo LED 110, great looking tank!!

Cleaned all of the gravel and decorations and filled up with water and put in some water chlorine remover that I got from pets at home.

A couple of hours after setting up i noticed all of these micro bubbles all over the glass, decorations and filter.

Not 100% sure what they are and if they will clear on there own, they are the same when I woke up this morning.

If someone could shed some light on this that would be great as I am an ultimate beginner to fish keeping!

Thank you

The bubbles are normmal in a new tank and will clear.
If you read the pinned post in this section about fishless cycle it will give you the best start. If you decide to do a fish cycle have a read at that post and go really slow.
