    You mentioned your pH is 6 or lower, is that still the case? Nitrifying bacteria prefer a more alkaline pH ideally, meaning your cycle might not get going at that pH. Having a pH of 6 with 4 ppm ammonia seems awfully low, as ammonia is very alkaline itself. My pH dropped from 8.4 to 7.4 going from 4 ppm to 0. Just something to keep your eye on.

    As for your pics, double check the file size. I had the same problem until I shrank them down a bit.

    I checked and resized to a thumbnail still was a no go. My wife even tried for 30min before giving up. I have followed the how to several times with multiple pics and still won't attach and fails to upload. I may give it another go this weekend.

    I just tested my pH with a brand new bottle and it looks like my old bottle may have been expired.

    pH is currently at 7.0

    Nice, you got the pics to work

    Are you planning to put in a background? I found it made a huge difference for mine. Just threw a piece of poster board behind the tank, cheap and easy, and looks (IMO) a whole lot better.

    Not really sure yet. I am still adding plants and driftwood and what not. I may try it and see how it goes.

    looks great so far - hope to see more pics soon.

    I also bought some poster board from Walmart for my background - easy and very cheap alternative to a cheesy designed one.

    I am getting a better matching set of heaters as well after I am done cycling.

    Although it has been 8 days and I haven't seen a reduction in ammonia and no trace of nitrites or nitrates. Is there anything aside time I can do to kick start this process?
