I am cycling a 25 gallon tall with a filter I grabbed from the LG's and am finally seeing some Ammo show up in the test... yes I'm using the API master kit. The Ammo is at 0.25ppm but no nitrates present yet. I'm using a penguin 350 filter minus the carbon inserts. I spent an hour and a half reading through the newbie mistake threads lol. Im running a 200w aqua top heater with an led
light setup. It's lightly planted and I'm slowly adding more plants and am looking for the right piece of driftwood and rocks.
Thanks everyone for the welcomes and advice I've gotten. It's nice to have a place like this to turn to for answers... My Lfs
looks at me like I'm wasting their time so I just stopped asking them questions.
