    Whenever you crush the pest snails, are you leaving them in the tank?

    Decomposing animal matter creates ammonia.

    no i crush them with my fingers then pull them out of the tank and dispose of them. if there are any that died on their own they might be in the gravel/substrate. but any that i saw i crushed physically with my fingertip and then pulled them out. one or two fell off my finger as debris but the majority ended up in the palm of my hand for disposal. i got really good at crushing and removing snails when i had my first tanks when i purchased live plants for them.

    cleaned off some more diatoms/possible blue green algae off the side of my aquarium. tried to squish a snail today and missed. so am waiting for it to show up again because it fell to the substrate.

    ammo reading didn't change. nothing added to my tank

    I have green hair algae that are recurring in my tank. this was happening before i even took the crypto out. short of dosing with antibiotics which will ruin everything in my cycle thus far what can i do. It's growing on the substrate, the side of the tank where my jungle val is, and the back of the tank next to the intake holes in the separator for the filtration section from the main section of the tank. according to the paper ammo testing it's .25 but according to the link you gave me it's .50 ammo...either way tank is still not cycled.

    Thanks

    How long are you leaving the lights on?

    Try cutting back.

    i dialed my time back to turn off at 4pm for now. there's no direct light coming from the window closest to the tank either as i always keep those blinds shut..
