    This is my first convict breeding journal.

    I added my male and female today. So this would be week 1 ;). Specs:
    35 gallon long tank
    Aqueon Quiet Flow 30
    Marine 30 power filter
    Two air pumps with two small air stones.
    Large deco for cave for breeding and a few plants.
    Sand substrate

    My parameters are a bit wonky now that they have been added to the tank for the day. So a water change is currently in action.
    pH 7.6
    Ammonia 0ppm
    Nitrite a little under 1
    Nitrate a bit less than 40 ppm
    I am using my new API testing kit ;)

    Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated! Thank you!
