I am starting all over with my 10 gallon after it and my 5 gallon crashed due to Flukes that came on moss balls I got from Ebay. So now my 5 gallon is empty and soaking with hot water and vinegar. My 10 gallon is cycling with a raw shrimp in a mesh bag behind the sponge filter. I have been cycling for 2 weeks. The test results today were Ammonia 10,Nitrites 20, Nitrates 50, PH 7.2, and Temp 82.7. The plants I put in today are Anubias Nana , Christmas moss,and Water sprite.
