Yes I meant the movement lol. You can never have too much filtration either. I highly recommend getting a small aquaclear HOB.

Today I have purchased the Hydor Koralia Evolution 2800 powerhead and a 500ml bottle of Seachem Prime to see why you're all raving about it. 5ml for 200litres of water treatment wow!!!! I thought my LFS own brand conditioner was good at 5ml per 45litres lol.


I have also decided to rescape my tank slightly differently. I will post pics once complete.

Found a nice porcelain cave system today at my LFS.



Attachment 88743


Thought it was pretty cool. It's actually 3 separate pieces that stand on each other.

They were labeled as Cichlid caves.

I will be checking and redosing ammonia during a week to be sure while I rescape my tank.

It's just really weird, how a little while ago I was worrying about high nitrites and doing PWC's and now it's done. Lol.

Lol yay! If you can completely convert 4ppm ammo into nitrAtes in 24 hours or less, then you just need to do a PWC to get the nitrates below 20 and you can start stocking! Whooo!

In the last 24hours I have converted 3ppm of Ammonia.

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 80

I have redosed Ammonia up to 4ppm. Will wait and see now if it all converts by this time tomorrow.
