20 gallon planted - Page 3

You know you are cycled when you trst the ammonia and it is around 4ppm and the next day when you test it, it is 0 and so are nitrites. If you have used a filter from and old tank if it is already cycled then that will massively speed up the cycle, or maybe instantly cycle your tank. I also tested my water everyday. What are your readings for ammonia nitrites and nitrates from today?

Did a rescape today so the substrates would remain separate. Also tried to give nore height to the tank and planted thr marsilea hirsuta in a way that should eventually carpet:

Did you happen to order the wood pieces online? What type are they? I love them!

Are you still using the NICREW RGB? Also I saw you said that it allows you to get high-light plants, would the NICREW ClassicLED Plus Planted also allow that or is it a medium or low light.

EDIT: On it's website it says low to high light plants but idk if it's true.

Love how this tank is progressing. Want to get myself some more chili rasboras though. This tank has 15 amano shrimp in it now aswell and 5 otos so algae pretty much doesnt exist.
