Vagoma Posted October 24, 2022 Share Posted October 24, 2022 First Time Aquarium 55Gallon: 40lbs kitty litter/4kg FLUVAL Plant & Shrimp Stratum all planted the first week Eleocharis Parvula/Limnophilia Sessilifora/Bacopa Compact/Ludwiga Palustris/Dwarf Hairgrass/Pearlweed Fluval 406 prefilter only, 6L Eheim Subtrat Pro inside Nitrates Week 1 Nitrates Week 3 Test Strip Week 3 Nitrates Test Strip Week 3 PH Pearlweed died back and starting to grow week3 Dwarf Hairgrass Week 3 growing roots Pentair Everpure 4C is the filter used for water. Eheim 200w Heater set@75 The only thing added to the tank is some algae wafers for the snails that showed up, Seachem prime/stability and Tropica specialized fertilizer. Lights are the 48" led bar that came with the kit and a Nicrew Skyled 36" This is all the info I can think to give. So did my nitrates disappear in 3 weeks? My test strips say otherwise. Is my tank ready for fish? could one of my test be tainted? When I repeat the tests the results are the same. A Digital TDS Meter Also a Digital PH Meter will arrive today. What I would like to do is be overstocked with Neon tetras and red cherry shrimp. Any advice is welcome! Also if I'm doing something wrong please let me know as well. I forgot to add that the water has never been changed Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
