Did another water test today got Ammonia. 25, Nitrites 0, nitrates 5. I am going to do a partial water change in the morning and test again.

Is there ammonia in your water straight out of the tap?

I placed an order with sweet aquatics last saturday and they emailed me back and said that the earliest my order will be shipped is this saturday (tomorrow) or possibly monday. The tank looks great by the way

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.

I put my order in on Saturday and emailed them on sunday morning asking if they got my order and when they thought they would ship it out. They responded later in the day on Tuesday. Although monday was labor day, so I am sure they would have responded sooner.

This did not happen as I work up to a basement floor of water . Water heater decided it was time to leak. So I spent all my morning/afternoon before coming to work replacing the water heater. I will reschedule this for in the morning with the hopes of actually being able to do it.

I am still waiting on my plants from sweetaquatics. I sent them an email this morning asking about my order no response yet.

Here is a pic of my 29 gallon that I moved some plants to. I will make a log on this tank as well. I am wait for some stuff to put Co2 in this tank. I am also going to get different plant as well

I found out today that my cities tap water will have some counts of mercury it it. The lvls are suppose to be in the safe zone but will be okay for my fish. I am asking cause I just did a water change without knowing this information.
