I did add a good amount of live bacteria and squeezed my filter out from my other established tank into this one to try and get some more live bacteria into the tank, that might be why it happened so early?!

Is the top glass with just a square hole for the lights?


Have you been adding ammonia to start the cycle (sorry if you already posted this I may have missed it)

Day 5!

Fluval Edge is doing great! Now with first decoration! Water is all perfect, heater is heating to 28*C, filter is keeping everything clean, bacteria added! May even be ready for fish by the weekend! Piccy below!



Water test results tomorrow!

I have ordered some white stones for the tank, I will glue 6 of them together for each side and they will go up each of the back sides of the tank, I think that'll look great!

Still looks WAAAY better in person IMO.

Any advice is always appreciated!

Thanks

Benji

that rock looks really nice, but if it turns out to by gypsum as someone suggested before itll ruin u water chemistry. I actually dont think i need anymore rocks, if u plant that now it would look great with that rock as a centerpiece.

It is not Gypsum, it looks nothing like it, and my LFS said it would be fine to use in my tank, but I will keep a good eye on the water chemistry and if it has changed, it'll come right out.

As for the plants, I don't know what to put in! Any help would be great!

i think you should skip the white rocks and get a microsword lawn, then accent your rock with small patches of marimo ball moss
