    Tested trAtes again, they're back up there high once more. I don't get it. I've got a ton of plants in the tank. I really am considering just stopping with this tank and giving up.

    Nope, never did add any of the "instant bacteria". I only used Prime for my water changes.

    I had hairgrass a few times that didn't make it. I left them in until I figured they weren't going to bounce back, then I removed them.

    So for tonight, add ammonia or don't?

    After a big water change, heavy gravel cleaning, and addition of a few more plants, it's safe to say that my trAtes are now down to about 10 ppm!

    I'll try that!

    I've been told not to dose ammonia, however. Could I try going a day without adding ammonia, then test trAtes tomorrow?

    This is the first time for this tank, because I assumed I wouldn't need to do it since there shouldn't be anything in the gravel since there's been no fish in the tank.

    90% water change and really sucked some gunk out of the gravel with my vac. With all the plants in the tank, I don't understand why trAtes won't go down.

    I have not yet. Hopefully I'll get some time to do that tomorrow after my post-op.

    I also just ordered some Rabbit snails for this tank, because I love large snails and these just look so cool.

    Before the water change my trates were super red, 160 at least. I changed 80% of the water and trates look just about the same. I've got a ton of plants in the tank too. That should help.
