Yeah I will need to check when I'm home. I have been doing large water changes every other day and getting no ammonia readings with my red sea kit.
I was away for the weekend so put in ammo lock just to be safe but I changed about 40% of the water when I came back and it was less than 48hrs.
I have bee running carbon also. Maybe it is just some algae on the glass. I siphon out poop and left over food instantly when ever I see it so I find it hard to understand why I would have a bacteria bloom.
Hopefully all is ok when I get home 🤞
