My first tank (29G) finally cycled despite an array of problems and all 11 fishes lived!
now I have identified a diatomic bloom. It's a pretty good one as I refused to deal with 'whatever it was' until all levels had been holding steady for a little while. Did a pretty good cleaning today.
The guy at LFS
wouldn't sell me any of his ottos as he said they weren't doing well. I came home with 3 tiger snails.
Am having a hard time finding info on them, as I assume they're not the 'giant' variety. Any help???
Also, sorry, but I have to use RO
water as my tap contains very high ammonia and ph. So I've been adding Kent liquid RO
rite. (thank you librarygirl!) Problem: I don't know what my tds
readings should be.
29G planted, 6 leopard danios, 5 cardinal tetras, 3 tiger snails.. community still under construction.
Nitrite, ammonia at 0. Ph 6. (under 7... just did a change with RO
at 6.6) Nitrates 5.0, tds
Any help would be much appreciated.
