Thanks for the article. After reading it I can say that Yes, I am cycling my tank
Although not with ammonia, but with bacteria from bottle (I was advised in the fish store...). I put plants and dechlorinator as well. I set the tank up on Saturday, so today is the 5th day. The parameters are the following: NO3
10 yesterday and 16 today, KH
10, PH 7.6. I am not sure if the it is good that NO3
is low (in the article it said it should increase in the beginning, but maybe with added bacteria the process is different). And what does it mean that GH
has increased? Shall I already now do a pwc
and rinsing the filter? Or is it too early for that?
