I setup a 150 gallon freshwater tank about 3-4 months ago, but before I had a chance to complete the tank I got distracted and never finished. Now I have a tank that has been running for several months and I am not sure how to proceed.
The tanks current condition does not appear to be that bad all things considered. There a thin coat of dark brown algae covering the gravel and drift wood, but otherwise the tank seems to be in good woring order. I conducted some water parameter tests to help determine how to proceed; please see below for results.
Deluxe Fresh Lab (Red Sea):
Cl2 (0 ppm
General Hardness - GH
NH4 (<0.25 ppm
Just FYI, I intend on making this a freshwater planted community tank. Also, I have one dose of Marineland Bio-Spira in the refrigerator that I planned on using during the initial setup of this tank.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this post. Any advise and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
