Day 14

NH3/NH4- 0
NO2- 0
added 132 drops of ammonia
I purchased items yesterday for my qt.I should have them sometime next week. Once DT is cycled I will start cycling the QT.I still need a thermometer and a refractometer but i figured since my DT has no fish i can use that refractometer and buy a thermometer since they are fairly inexpensive.
