Ok, so check this out. I have 6 damsels and 35lbs of LR
. My tank has been running for a week (around 80F, 1.022 SG
, i dont remember what my PH
is off the top of my head) and I am getting strange chemical readings. I have been testing every other day since I completely filled the tank. My inital readings was 0ppm for everything. As the week has progressed, my Ammonia and Nitrites have stayed at 0ppm and my Nitrates have risen to 5ppm. I also have a nice layer of brown algae (which appeared over night). Any Ideas or have I gone retarded?
