I'm new to the site and I'm hoping you can help.
Here is my Aquarium setup:
1x 70 Litre Tank
1x Aquis 500 External Canister
1x Cup Aqua One ChemiCarb (In Aquis 500)
1x Cup Aqua One Aqua One ChemiZee (In Aquis 500)
3x Tiger Barbs
1x Aqua One SR Air Pump (SR 2500)
Have had the Tiger Barbs now for a week and their doing really well. Prior to getting the fish, had left it cycling for over 6 weeks. Had used Nutrafin Cycle (Biological Aquarium Supplement) to get the cycle going.
These were the reading of the Aquarium before adding the fish:
Ph: 7 (Neutral)
A week later after adding the fish, here are the readings:
Nitrate: Between 0 and 5 ppm (Had peaked to 5, but appears to be dropping)
Kh: - (API drop fails to get reading, have used AMMO Lock)
Gh: - (API drop fails to get reading, have used AMMO Lock)
Ammonia: 8 ppm ( It steadily rose to this reading)
will chemcarb and chemzee, interfere with the cycling ??? what are your opinions ??? Is it indeed cycling and if it is ??? How far off is till I can add more fish ???
Being a 70 Litre tank, how many more fish can i add ??? Thinking of adding 4 more barbs and maybe 6 Neon Tetras and maybe a few Black Tetra.
Can this tank support having all these fish ???
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
