so my tank has been up an running for a few weeks not. I used turbo start to short cycle it. I think this is either the 2nd or third week it has been running and evrything has been great, as of right now the tests are as follows;
nitrate about 20 ppm
nitrite about .5 ppm
hardness about 100-110 alkalinity/buffering about 80 and ph 6.8-7, the alkalinity seems to be getting lower.
I have 3 angel fish, 2 fairly small and one fairly large. 3 platties, one male betta, 2 ghost shrimp, a clown loach and a cory. should I be doing the first water change now? and does all of this seem in line.
just to ad, I have been doing this for a while and have had good success with all my tanks, and considered my self semi knowledgeable, but you guys blow me away. and I take everyones opinion and advise seriously and hope to better my self from it. Thanks. Dan
