Ok, I did the test and let it sit and the PH was fine...
Ok I did a 50% water change on 3/17
tested my levels today:
My KH took 10 drops to turn the water green. According to my chart that's 179
Any thoughts on my levels?
My plants are doing better. My sword died way down though. But for now it's staying green. I took it out of the substrate for a month and that seemed to help a lot. makes me wonder if the substrate was just to much for it.
I still have a lot of algea in the tank. I have tons of snails but they don't seem to help much. I'd like to get an algea eater but I don't want one that will eat fish eggs. Not that I plan on breeding but if I do I'd like the eggs to be safe. (I have no fish in my tank right now)
My Brazilian Pennywort died way back too. But I think that's because I had it shipped when it was very cold out. The plant survived but died way back after. I'm hoping it survives and starts to re grow.
I also cleaned off my sponge. I hadn't done that since I set up the tank, that will hopefully help too
