Brutus' Tank 2-22-14:
ph= 8.2 (7.8)
TAN= Between .5 and 1.0ppm (.25ppm)
NH3= < .05 ppm
Nitrite= .25ppm (0 ppm)
First time to ever detect Nitrite...Did a 75% water change and retested 1 hour later retest values are in parentheses. Next test kit I am going to try another besides the API as I am having a real tough time differentiating the greens on the ammonia test. Also added a 1.5 inch PVC pipe fitting as a cave/toy to replace the betta log.
Planted Tank 2-22-14:
TAN= .25 ppm
Yesterday added some Hornwort and a potted dwarf chain sword. Dosed carbon and fert. Have bottle of Phosphorus and nitrogen on order.
Note: several days ago removed 2 moss balls from the planted tank, they were turning brown. Believe due to the fertilizer. They are living in mason jar, can't believe how well they are bouncing back.
