Your livestock will eventually benefit my being cared for by someone who obviously cares a lot about doing things properly.

Best of luck to you.

Send me a PM if you can to let me know how things are settling in. A few pics, too!!

John

Thank you John,

I don't believe any animal should be owned unless the person is willing and capable of caring for it properly.

Reading were good this morning nitrates 0, Ph 7.4

Your pH is too low. It shoudl be around 8.3.

ALso, at this point I'd be less concerned with nitrates and more attentive to ammonia and nitrites.

Agreed.

In my filter I have a slot for filter media, and the BIO-Wheels. During the cycle I'm going to run some filter floss instead of carbon bags.
Should I remove the BIO-Wheels from my filters and replace it with LR rubble while I'm setting my tank up for the first time? Ditch the BIO-Wheels FOREVER or keep em' just in case?

Thanks

I may but I'm still holding my breath. I hate doing stupid things and then having to pay for them. We will see. Thank you for you concern.

yes, replace them with LR rubble if you have the opportunity. No need to keep the bio-wheels, give them away.

Rachel...hopefully you are in the clear.
