    For an African cichlid tank it is usually safer to go to 5 ppm ammonia because final stock is generally overstocked compared to a community tank, but don't go over 5 ppm as that would increase the...

    For future reference, dimensions are more use than volume, although in your case, it does sound like the tank is big enough.

    5 ppm of ammonia is fine, but I prefer to use 3-4 ppm because most kits do not have colour swatch for 5 ppm, but do for 3 ppm or 4 ppm, and it is easier to overdose ammonia at 5 ppm.

    How big is the "breeder box"? Most are kinda too small for fry in the long term, although probably ok for the moment.

    Usually females are done within 24 hours, but sometimes they may take longer.
