You wouldn't believe how hard it was to find ammonia here... so much so that I couldn't get any. Only ammonia I could find was in Walmart, it had some chemicals which were on the nono list.
So I had to do a fish cycle, its almost complete. I'm keeping a keen eye on my fish and water parameters with daily changes (amount depend on levels).
Just thought I show you what it looks like so far! Looking for rocks to put in it, and I refuse to pay +30 bucks for rocks. Found some sandstone which I'm going to do tests to see if it's usable.
Also I am not sure if the light has enough energy/uv to sustain plants. Since it was bought second hand, the lady I got the tank from didn't know whether it could or not. Its a darkish purple light compared to my florescent brightish light from the 10 gallon. Would this be one of those low lights that plants can live off of?
