Added initial stock of eight juvenile yellow labs, eight juvenile cobalt blue zebras, and one bushy nose pleco. I am still looking for one more compatible species to add.
Ready for fish. 50% water change to remove nitrates complete. Tomorrow I will start shopping. I will either get the fish online or at my LFS, depending on selection.
The tank is cycled. After a 2 ppm dose of ammonia, ammonia and nitrites were both 0 ppm after 24 hours. I will continue to dose ammonia every other day until my fish arrive. I am somewhat concerned
Ammonia and nitrites have decreased to undetectable levels after 48 hours. I think the tank is almost cycled, which will make me a believer in SafeStart. I re-dosed ammonia today to approximately 2
The SafeStart has definitely done something. Nitrites are off the chart, and ammonia is zero. I have a small amount of nitrates. I will continue to add ammonia to approximately 2ppm every other day
Switched powerhead. The new Koralia seems to move a similar amount of water but the "stream" seems less focused and, for now, it seems to blow my sand around less. Had to add approximately 10 gallons
