I set this 10g tank up on Sunday (my first). Let it run for 24 hours and then I bought a crawdad and an API test kit.
Here are the results:
Monday (Day 1):
30% Water Change Completed after test.
No water change
Ammonia 0.50 (maybe 1.0)
30% Water Change after test.
My crawdad is still alive. I think I'm doing these tests right. Sometimes it is hard for me to differentiate the colors on the scale. I thought I was supposed to see a rise in Nitrites before Nitrates and that it wasn't supposed to happen this fast? Have a look:
(I'm not the best photographer)
Let me know what you think. How long does my Crawdad have to live?
