Day 11:
Ammonia is down to ~3 ppm.
Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but the Nitrite test doesn't appear to be quite the same bright blue zero that it normally is. I'm thinking/hoping there will be a measurable number tomorrow.

Probably. Your cycle is wrapping up.

Ammonia: 2.0
Nitrite: 0.25

Also, I've spotted a second Feather Duster near the first one.

Based on recommendations from here and other places, I ordered a few things from J&L Aquatics that arrived in less than 24 hours!




As you can see on the box, the powerhead came with a deflector attachment to aid in surface agitation. It's huge and ugly and I don't like it, but this is just in there for current so I should be fine without it yes?

My HOB seems to be creating bubbles in the tank and it never used to. Any idea what's causing this/how to fix it?

Micro bubble? Try a fine fabric to catch them. Put it over the place the are coming out.

Day 13
Ammonia: 1.0
Nitrite: 1.0

Cycle seems to be going good . My only concern is that I might not be able to find a fish right away after the cycle is complete. Would I have to add an ammonia source to keep it cycled?

Now that we're getting really close to buying livestock, I have a few stocking questions.

My plan is pretty simple, a Clownfish and a Firefish. If possible I would also like to get a couple Hermit Crabs and a couple snails. Are these compatible, should I acquire them in a certain order?
