please dont take my beliefs personally, i just have my own ideas about what the english language is and is not. I am very against a standardization of the language. Presrcriptive Grammarians and I usually do not get along 8)

Now let's see what was the thread topic? Oh ya, inverts adding to the bioload

I would actually suggest the inverts themselves where not the cause but rather something else. If water was introduced from the LFS bag, that could have added something or possibley the test kit was not reading correctly unless it's still reading as such.

There is also the possiblility of ammonia appearing after the tank is suspected of cycling. It part of the tanks maturing process and small elevations in these numbers can and will happen. They are usually very short lived and often not noticed by hobbiest. You can never know what the rock contains and the possibility of a hitchiker up and dieing is more than possible at any stage which would contribute to the ammonia.

Personally I would call this coincidence but a few water changes should solve your problem for the time being.

thanks for the info guys. i did do a 5 gallon water change. i will test tonight and possibly another water change. as of today all the new animals still all appear to be doing fine. my guess is that something died between my last two tests. i did find the remains of a emerald crab i had not seen since the previous test.

as always thanks everyone for the input
