my Tank is pretty much fully cycled now, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, pH 8.4. my nitrate was still giving a reading but it was the lowest on the chart and i did a PWC
last night which should hopefully take care of that. now this brings me to my question. now that i am cycled i know i should wait another week before livestock just to continue checking my parameters but should i start running my light and if so for how long each day?
also i went to my LFS
to find some sand to switch my substrate and all i could find was very fine CC should i hold off for the sand since i would like to get some sifters at one point?
