    MTS...yes or no?

    I apologize if this is covered elsewhere in this forum but I'm wondering what the current thought is on this subject.

    All three of my aquariums have a little algae in them. I don't mind scrubbing...

    API Liquid Nitrite Test Weirdness

    In each of the last two days of nitrite testing I noticed this odd phenomenon, and since I have never seen nitrites test above .5 until I began cycling this particular tank, I am not sure if this is...

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I thought about a big WC but was concerned about losing the built-up nitrites. But it makes sense that the ammonia BB would simply make more.

    Yay, another WC!...

    Thank you. Every time I do a WC in that 16g I kick myself for not doing my research first - so until yesterday I was kicking myself twice a day.

    I find myself drifting away from a themed tank and towards sheer beauty. Another way of saying that I'm back at square one on stocking. I'll be lucky if this cycle takes a month or more.
