Tested the levels in my new 10 gallon and the results were: Ph-7.6
Ammonia-0.25
No2- 5.0 off the chart
No3-0.5. Thank you seeded filter material! Also in my 29 gallon, noticed my java ferns have been getting busy 'wink wink'

You can never go wrong with adding LR. It actually acts as a filter. The more the better

I think I just started off wierd. The coralline algae is showing up on the new rock now and the diatom is disappearing. While watching the 75 I've been forgetting about the 44! lol but they've been fine. Added some turbos and hermits today

Did some tests today on my cycling 29 gallon tank. And saw nitrites and little nitrates for the first time! Just happy at the fact the cycle is actually moving along! Gonna do some redecorating tomorrow!!

Waterchanges all around. I also did a plant swap between my tanks. Not liking how my 10 turned out but we will see.

I added a black background to my 30

10 gal water change
can't find my dotty back (confused)

so I went about doing maintenance on my other tanks
low and behold cleaning brackish tank
who do I find my dotty back

don't know how he got in there other than the tank being under my salt tank
the thing that confused me is both tanks have full covers with no openings anywhere

and he seems to be ok so it's time to acclimate him before I put him back in his real home

I just got my replacement filter pads for my marineland emporer 400 and purigen pouch in the mail. I replaced my filter cartridges and put the purigen in my DIY purigen bags (made from 2 layers of panty hose) and put that in my media baskets. I tested my pH and nitrates. I'll retest tomorrow to see if there is any change.
