Sorry for the delay, I was out of town. I used all the pre-existing rock plus some new rock, 10 gal of origional water and planting without cleaning any of them. Then filled with fresh water to top it off.
Amonia levels are nearly 0, nitrites 0, ph aprox 7.4 and nitrates 20-25ppm.
I wish I had the room for a larger tank but due to my appt size, this is the most I can do for them.
It may be an overload for this system and ill have to change the filter about every 1.5 week, but im hoping that this will change and I can get the filter to last at least 3 weeks being as their kinda pricey.
Any suggestions to help the filter last longer or is it just too much waste?
Thanks for the help
