I had to give her away. That was when I found out my well had ammonia in it. I cleaned everything out and cycled with new media and was using rainwater and bottled water for w/c's. Got to bee too much work to keep her 55 gallon tank clean. I'm disabled and I just couldn't keep up with the maintenance she required. I got tank balanced and then gave her away and took some of the media from her filters and used it to seed the 10 gallon filter as I knew that 55 gallon tank was healthy. Kaylee the Oscar is doing great and has grown 2" since I gave her away in Dec. That was when I started cycling the 10 gallon tank.
