I don’t understand this. To much crazy yesterday. So I didn’t get to test. Today I test and NH3 = 0, NO3 dropped back to 0, & NO2 jumped to 2ppm.? I can’t see any pods swimming. But that don’t mean anything. I’m starting to wonder about these kits. They aren’t expired.

So got to thinking about not seeing any pods. And that led my to check my filter socks. Guess where I think every pod in the tank was? Lol yep about a billion in there. I turned them inside out and put them back in the DT. Dosed another 70ml of phyto. Ordered some food and will start ghost feeding when it comes in. Once nutrients are up, I will order cheato.

Nice!  Enjoy that familiar blue glow again!

Not sure I’m keeping the lights. But regardless, I need more blue than that.

More blue than that? I'm looking for less blue on mine lol. Either way tank is looking great. Is that Stax rock in there?

Thanks. No it’s just Marco rock. Most of it is what BRS calls a shelf and foundation rock.

I’ve decided since I’ve added phyto and pods. I should probably run the lights. So I’m running them 4 hours a day. 70% Blues & 60% Whites.

Looking great.  I like the nice clean uncluttered look.

Thanks. I didn’t realize it before the lights were on. But there are more caves and holes than I originally thought.

Dosed 40ml of phyto on Tuesday. Will dose again today. The hunt for the fish I want is not looking promising. I did get some ball valves installed. I’ll post pics later.

I’m going to start getting fish in about every 2 weeks after the first shipment until my stocking list is complete. Allowing a couple of weeks to let things settle in.

What else are you thinking for future additions ?
