I have a "fish notebook" that I made for the purpose of test results only. The numbers fluctuated a little the whole time (4 weeks) but not like since I vacuumed gravel. I was even thinking my tank was cycling faster than the norm. I did not completely remove all the old fish food in the gravel - water came out faster than the debris & I didn't want to keep vacuuming & stress out the fish. Tetra told me not to vacuum a 2nd time, so I didn't. And I have been VERY CAREFUL on not over feeding since the gravel cleaning. (I know I was before, but thankfully it did not harm my fish).

Water Quality??
Ok, so Tetra sends me regular emails & tells me when its time to do anything...guiding me...they said last week time to vacuum gravel, so thats what i did - along with water change of course. I changed filter cartridge several days after - they said not to do both at same time. All test numbers have been outta whack so bad - but not dangerously. I even called them for the first time cause I was so concerned. They told me just to keep an eye on fish - no water change, etc. Well, I felt that something just wasn't right; the next day I done 25% water change anyway, and now numbers are alot better, though still a little off. Tank is on week 5 of cycling. Hoping that is what is going on - or either cause of putting in a new filter cartridge. Fish seem to be happy - swimming around, no lethargy, no fast/hard breathing, no white spots on fins or anywhere, no damage to body or fins, etc. I look at them every day & check all these things. So, any ideas/advice on whats gotten the numbers outta whack??

A vote for both of your tanks tanks! Looks like your having fun. I just bought a bolivian ram for my 20gallon. The ram is doing fine with my cardinal tetras. Here's that jote

I've read that they like to hide behind plants, and though I had a few in there, I got 2 more and wow! They really do love doing that!!

Thanks for the advice and votes. Tetra sends me emails on a regular basis to guide me along so I do the right thing and my fish stay healthy and happy - so far so good! I was sure they'd be passed on by now, so I must be doing something right :)) I LOVE to learn all I can and really enjoy watching my fish - I laugh at them sometimes. I had noticed the 1 wasn't sleeping in the corner cave anymore. I thought he/she didn't like it that I put in the bigger cave in the middle. Well, this morning I noticed 1 was sleeping in the corner cave and the other in the bigger cave - SO EXCITING!!! Yeah!!!

not really sure !!!
in regards to the different colors of the lights all i can think of is that there is to different kinds one is compact and the other is 18 inch dont know why that makes a difference in color but it might have something to do with the background thats the only other thing i can think of the fish seem to be just fine under the 18 inch light i guess we'll never know it must just be one of those things left vote cul

Comments and advice you say!
You're readyness or desire for information is invaluable. This is very uncommon, I have noticed. Most people tend to get an aquarium setup and just stock or fill it with anything that looks appealing to them. You've got to know by now, that will most likely lead to many problems! My advice is not much other than you only having two neon tetras. They tend to do best in odd numbers, so if you are keeping your fish numbers down, then maybe add one more, making a total number of three. I had a ten gallon a few years back and had nine neons in it, and other fish. Oh yeah, a lot of people leave out their list of fish, it's not just you. Try playing with your account by clicking the EDIT button on your account page, there you can add your list for all to see! Stay in touch and let me know if I can help with anything! Here's a Vote!!!

Any comments/advice would be greatly appreciated - I've spent many hours researching/trying to learn all I can about not just beautifying my tank, but most importantly, how to cycle the aquarium/keep healthy fish. For some reason it won't show up in my profile but...I have 2 Neon Tetras, 10 gallon tank. I first had a 1 gallon, then within hours of getting them learned I should have at least a 10 gallon, so the next day hubby bought me the 10 gallon.
