Grizzly Posted March 18, 2022 Share Posted March 18, 2022 I have a hex tank think it’s in the 20 -30 gallon size newly dirted with pea gravel cap about a month ago . With the seeded sponge filter and there were no nitrites or ammonia after 24 hours and like 10 nitrates so I added my shrimp ( about 30 cherry shrimp) also have ramshorn snails and an Endler trio I got for a swap meet a couple weeks ago. As far as plants I have red root floaters , crypt tropica , dwarf sag, tiger lotus bulb I just planted, and a few stems of ludwigia Repens . Now the last 2 weeks I have been having nitrites according to the Co Op tests strips at 1. Nitrates at around 10 and 0 ammonia. Anyone have any idea why the nitrites have popped up? Could it be the soil? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
