@ Sniperhawk: Thanks! I'm still learning all the lingo...
Anyway, here are my levels about 24 hours after my last testing:
Ammonia: 1.0 ppm
Nitrite: 0.50-1.0 ppm
Nitrate: ~ 10 ppm
Temp: 80 degrees
Added 4 more drops of ammonia and I'll test again in about twenty minutes to see if that was enough to get me to that golden 4 ppm
. Does anyone have prior experience with dosing a 34 gallon? If so, how much ammonia did you use?
In other news, I've found (or, probably more accurately finally noticed) my first hitchhikers! In addition to the featherdusters I finally took the time to search and not only noticed all my cute little copepods swimming around but also a little chiton!
To my knowledge, he is good for the tank, correct? In any case, I've named him Glen and I think he may be intertidal because I found him chillin' just outside the waterline of my tank!
