I added dead rock from BRS and water on october 1st, (20 days ago) I added a green chromi a few days later, and been feeding him what I would consider fairly heavy. I added a couple blue legged hermits and snails about a week after him. I do my best to support local business and my LFS was out of test kits until just today, So I did my 1st water test today. heres my results. Used API liquid test kits, brand new just in. Temp 78.1 Salinity 1.024 PH 8.2 Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 20, maybe a very slight hair lighter than 20 but closer to 20 than anything. I never had a big algae breakout, I have a very very small (about the size of a half dollar) spot of GHA on my substrate. I just got my test kit today so I was never able to measure when my ammonia spike happend, but I had a god awful smell 2 days into my tank which according to google usually means high ammonia. Thoughts? Input? Congrats? ;D I also bought a yellow watchmen today, but he's still at the store the LFS owner will keep him as long as I want, he looked healthy and the LFS sold 5 this week so I wanted to make sure he would keep one for me.
