Hello All!

I'm Oskar from Bellingham, Washington. It's been a few years since I've been able to enjoy this hobby. Currently I am limited to space and money but I couldn't resist any longer. I recently purchased a 30 gallon tall aquarium and compact florescent lights from craigslist. The same night was at the LFS and bought 30 pounds of mixed discount gravel. A Penguin 150 bio wheel filter and few extra filter pads. A bottle of bio bacteria booster. Gold buffer (the gal at the store told me the local water supply had very low pH). Also walked out with three little goldfish that I can return after they supply me some poop! And a cute black moore that is staying at the LFS for about a week until I'm established.

So currently we are at 48 hours. The first 24 hours the tank was fairly clear. I had a water test done at the LFS after 18 hours. There was no ammonia found. Now at 48 hours the tank has become very cloudy. The fish seem to be fine. I've done (2) five gallon water changes roughly 20 hours apart from each other. At each water change I've added another capful of the bio-start and 10 drops in the filter. I have also put 3 level teaspoons of the goldbuffer to raise pH. I'm going back to do another water test tomorrow! I need to purchase a test kit!

It's so nice to have an obsession again!

Hope that wasn't overwhelmingly boring! Thanks for reading.
