No algae or plants and yes I shook the bottles. I got a SLIGHT nitrate reading last night but my ammonia was still 1 so I dumped in a capful of Prime and ill re-dose TSS tomorrow.

It would be better to do 50% water change when ammonia is over 0.50ppm.

I couldn't at the time. I'm going to do one toast but wanted to lock up the ammonia in the meantime.

I'm sorry, Flint. I was whizzing by here so fast, I forgot who I was talking to. I know you know what you're doing.

It's okay, Hallyx. I understand. (: even if you chewed me out, everyone is here for the good of the fish we keep.

The hubby says that we can go get sand next week! If I am not getting nitrates by then, I'll go ahead and break down the tank, change the substrate, and start over with my extra bottle of TSS.
