Really appreciate the help I am getting. Honestly I been thinking of relocating back to Fla. one day soon. I use have a SW
tank and it was easy. Water there had a higher ph, easier to use compared to water way up north here. Plus the LFS
around here really stinks. You are right they are lazy, plus the things they recommend has driven me into insanity of knowing who is right.
Guess what, I had my water tested today. They asked me how many fishes I had. I told them 3. They said I need to add more to maintain the biological filteration that is going on and if I dont, I am wasting money setting up my tank.
Why would a LFS
do this, end up abusing the situation and cause someone to lose interest in maintaining a aquarium?
ammonia 0 ppm
nitrate ~12 ppm
