about day 5 I believe since I started(if you count the from the moment I added the shrimp. The ammonia readings are just going up and up about2.0-4.0 now and no nitrite or nitrate reading yet no problem. Now the questions I have are do you guys think uv
sterilizers are good the reason I started thinking about it is because I had a canister filter before but also in my tank I had cyanobacteria and bubble algae while using the filter. do you guys think if I re use the canister it might be re introduced into my new system and would a uv
help just in case.
ps. iam also not very good at remembering when to do water changes as I can get lazy and school can get complicated so the more filtration the better for me I guess. I also picked that uv
below because it was in a good price range and it had green killing machine
