View Full Version : My Weird 29G Cycle Log

09-20-2008, 02:40 AM
I have ACE Hardware brand pure ammonia. I add one teaspoon of ammonia which gives me roughly 8ppm. I used gravel from my 10G and put it in the 'waterfall' from my AC50 in a net bag. I also used the second established filter from my 10G which I added on day three. The spare filter is a six dollar walmart tetra whisper filter. Very small.

Nitra not tested

* All I did was dump in another tsp on this day. I didn't test either.

Amm 4ppm

Nitra not tested

* Added no amm
* Added established spare filter


Amm 0ppm
Nitri 2-3ppm
Nitra 7ppm!!!! :)

* Added 1tsp amm

Tomorrow I guess I will cut the amm in half and hopefully have some fish in this thing soon.

I originally wanted a dwarf cichlid of some sort as my feature fish but my pH is to high (8.3). Anyone have any ideas?
