So, I am still trying to fix that leak with the return tubing.
I will be away this weekend, so would you all recommend dosing more ammonia to keep they cycle going, or is it ok? Also, should I have my lights on at this point, (I know I wasn't supposed to have them on during the cycle).
Also, since I am still in the 8 week process for letting ich die off (in my 34g) I am going to temporarily going to use my 55g as a QT (Once Clown + Hippo are moved to 125g). My problem with the tank is that the nitrates are too high. I am working on lowering them by PWCs, but would it help to remove the sand? The sand was bought as "live".
I was thinking I could wash the sand out (to remove nitrates), and put in back in after I temporarily used the tank as a QT for the first set of fish I plan to order from Liveaquaria.com.
I think that is everything! Thank you soo much for reading!
. I know that this could possibly sound confusing, so if you need me to clarify things, please ask.
