Been about 2 weeks since adding the donor fiter cartridge.4 weeks since adding water. 3 weeks since adding fish. Donor cartridge was removed about a week ago. Doing daily water changes, 25%. Ammonia levels holding at 0, Nitrite 1. Angels are healthy and aggressive @ 78 degrees, hiding at 76.
About to set up a 55 for the angels. The plan is to get it cycled before moving the angels.
