Just before I change it, the ammonia reads about .25ppm with little to no nitrite or nitrate.

And the day before that, it's ~0.21ppm and the day before that ~0.17ppm, then ~0.13ppm, then ~0.09 etc.

The numbers are estimates, but illustrate the reason why I always advocate cycling any tank 2g and up.

It's also why I consider 2g the minimum tank size....because it can be cycled.

I have a HOB filter for the current. A clip on desk lamp + a 6400k 23w cfl. Gardensoil baseed NPT with sand cap.
Stocking is ten cherry shrimps, 1 very tiny betta and about 10 small ramshorn snails.
I have most of my surfaces covered with plants and I have floaters to help.
