This is my reading from this morning. The ammonia looks like it is up but it is zero and ph look a like its a higher then it is it's just the pic
Now I did go to the bay with my son and we got some of those little crabs that hide under the rocks and some small plants.
What do you guys think as far as what my cycle is doing and will those plants be beneficial to the tank? Also what should I give Rhodes little crabs. I know there scavengers so I crushed up some algae wafers. Lmk thank you all.
