Newbie Question....ONLY 2
Hey guys, sorry to be a pain but there are a few things i dont know yet.
Can someone explain to me what Cycling is :-?
Ammonia levels and how there messured.
Once again sorry to be a Dummie! pain in the but! :-(
Alright Bishop... you need to get a crash course on cycling you go here: Tips for Cycling Your New Aquarium - The First Tank Guide - Getting Your Fish Tank Up and Running with Minimal Headaches.
Ammonia levels - as well as nitrites, and nitrates, and pH, and kH, and gH - are all measured through test kits that you can purchase at your local fish store. They'll fetch about 50$ for the bunch but well worth the $$$ if you're gonna keep fish for the long haul.
BTW, welcome to the forum. :-)
An API Master Test kit can be purchased online for much cheaper than you'll find them retail.
I got mine here:
Aquarium Water Testing: Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Freshwater Master Test Kit
with the API kit you can test nitrite, nitrate, pH, ammonia, i have it and it works awsome. it is a great kit plus you get over 800 tests
You can test your Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite with this - Which all 3 are crucial factors during your cycling. Also you can test your pH and hardness with these (which determines apart from tank size what fish you should ideally house)
