    Work and home life have been busy. One of the boys at work decided jumping into his filter would be fun for him and the resulting fin rot from the stress of the ordeal would be fun for me *sighs* I took him home, put him in a 1/2 bowl with IAL, and have been treating him with AQ salt. He's a double tail butterfly so I'm really hoping his fins grow back soon because he looks wonky with his tiny red DT and nothing else.

    Not too bad. Got a new copper HMPK giant geno. He ain't to big and he sure ain't pretty. He's in my album.

    And how are you doing, Freyja? Haven't seen much of you lately. Of course, I haven't been around much myself.

    Congratulations. It's always gratifying to hear of successes. Why don't you write up a synopsis of your experience. A lot of new members could benefit greatly.

    Did water test yesterday on my 20g tank. ammonia 0. nitrites 0. nitrates 15. Seems my plants and my bacteria are doing marvelously.

    Right. It's cheaper than buying the tests for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates you get pH.
    The additive bottle should list nitrosomonas and nitrobacter (or nitrospira) in the contents. Tetra and Dr Tim's both do and one other I can't remember.

    Project cycling ten or twenty gallon tank should begin either this sunday or early next week. The lovely guy at my LFS even said he'd give me gravel from their established 55 gallon tank so technically my filter will be cycled from the get-go. Im going to get either the Tetra Safestart or the Micro something or other that I saw at wal-mart. I would need to get the Master Kit as well right?
