ok firstly dont worry about the ph the ammonia effects it so theres no point testing dont do a water change just keep adding ammonia daily until you raise the ammonia levels to 5ppm then just wait have a look at my sticky on fishless cycling with ammonia the whole process takes around 6 weeks
if its not submersible hows it gonna heat the water? there should be a wattage in the instructions companies arnt aloud to sell electrical equipment without giving the voltage/wattage as far as i know have another a look or failing that try to google the company and see if your heaters details...
never seen it i cycled mine fishless with ammonia have a look at my sticky fishless cycle using ammonia it is another road you could go down...worked fine for me the only problem was my own impatience!
lol 3 DG 1 male 2 female 8 cardinals 4 albino corys 1 bristle nose and a clown loach yep I have pushed it a bit with the stocking but at the everything seems fine if its unsustainable i'll reduce but its been like that for 2 months and they all seem happy as larry.
Hiya all. Fishlore is an excellent site but there are no profiles for fresh coldwater fish such as black mores red caps shabunkins etc.
I am currently keeping tropicals and with the help of FishLore I am pleased to report successfully! and will continue. I am now considering a coldwater tank...
i've lost one female because my male gets really aggressive and protective during spawning and he caused her some damage which never healed dispite isolating her and trying to nurse her sadly she died from her injuries(i guess)
Would there be a problem if you crossed the two varieties?
