First water change went well! I did take out 1 filter cartridge and replaced it with a filter pad and rinsed the other with tank water from the water change. Also added bio-rings to the filter ( the little bag of white things) my LFS said it would help keep beneficial bacteria. I would like opinions on that... My ammonia dropped to 1.0, nitrites stayed the same at 0.25, and nitrates went down a hair. I did dose with Fritz A.C.C.R to help detoxify the ammonia. On a positive note the cloudiness is gone! I think I may have had my plants out a little to long as they look a little more puny. So what I have learned after some reading is that the beneficial bacteria lives on substrate, the blue filter holders, decor ect.... My ammonia and nitrites should be zero at all times. When cycling don't you have to have both? How do you know when the tank is cycled? That is the most confusing part for me. I take my water levels everyday and yesterday was the first time ammonia had spiked that high. I understand now how important my water changes are!!! Will continue on a more regular basis!!! BIG THANK YOU for everyone's advise! It has helped a great deal. I'm glad to be here with y'all!!! Oh one more thing... I've read that you can have to many bubbles... Would y'all say that's to many bubbles? The Cory's seem to really enjoy them!!! There funny little dude's lol!!!
