Anacharis looking sick and tank not cycling
I'm trying to do a fishless cycle in my 10gallon using a prawn. Ammonia has been sitting around 5ppm for 3 weeks now, no nitrites or nitrates. Ph is 7.4 temperature sits around 78-79. planted with two bunches of anacharis and annubias on a driftwood. I got maybe a 1/4 cup of gravel from a friends tank about a week ago thinking it might get things going but so far NO fluctuation whatsoever with ammonia. I treated with prime when I first stated up and have added Florapride for the plants but otherwise have left it alone. I know it can take a while but I would think I should have seen some change by now? And now, the anacharis is looking see-through and wimpy. What the heck am I doing wrong?
