I am not really sure whats going on in my tank... Ok I have a 50 gallon as you guys know. It is cylceing right now. I have 25 pounds of LR
in a 10 gallon tub with a heater, powerhead, and filter on it. I am trying to get rid of the die off caused from shipping. Anyway There is brown algea all over my tank, all over the glass and the 7 1/2 pounds of lr
in it and the substrate. Do I just let it go or clean it off? Vaccum it up? I dont really know. Also I have had my LR
in the tub for about a week now and it still really stinks and has high ammonia levels. Even though I have done 2 water changes. What do I do? Leave it in there and keep doing water changes. One more question. With my tank, I bought bio-active live arognite (SP) And cured 7 pounds of LR
in it Does it sill cycle? The bags of substrate said no cycleing. I checked the levels today and the nitirites and ammonia are at 0 and the nitrates are at 20ppm I have 2 damsels in it with some hermits and a turbo snail. Is my cycle over? The tank has been set up for about 2 weeks. I am really confused. When I put the 25 pounds of LR
in will it start another cycle? Thanks in advance.
