Although I'd consider putting the fish in bags inside the cooler for the sake of compartmentalized space and it keeps them from being sloshed around inside a darkened box.

Whoops I forgot about that. This helps even more.

I can get some sweet pics of him when the Hydra 52's go down to the sunset and moonlight setting via the director. Recently I removed the frag rack and thats why the Acans and everything are on the sand N' rocks in some of the pics.

I purchased the upgrade to this tank after finishing my first semester of college. If anyone wants to tag along or has any suggestions on equipment feel free to click my link in my signature.

Checked my parameters when I got home with my puffer and the ammonia and nitrite had skyrocketed! found a somehow surfaced root tab. Now I have the puffer waiting in my snail tank because I can't get the ammonia below 0.25ppm. Nitrite returned to 0ppm. I've literally done 10 50% water changes and it will not drop below 0.25ppm.

You sure putting a puffer with snails is a good idea since they eat snails?

Have you tested your tap water?

I asked the same on his Instagram, he said tap reads zero. 10x 50% water changes over 3-4 hours would wipe out any negative perimeters in the water column as that's 5x 100% changes. I can't see root tab or substrate choice making ammonia rise that fast, even if the root tabs are prone to ammonia spikes. 2ppm ammonia isn't lethal to a fish anyhow, bio filter should be able to work out 2ppm quickly, with ease.

Well as of the test this morning it's went from 0.25ppm back up to 2ppm.
