First real thread, yay!
Okay so about a month ago I set up a new tank (August 22 to be precise), the 6.6 gallon bookshelf tank from Petco. Used the filter that came with it, ViaAqua heater.
I wanted to do a fishless cycle and have been using fish food. Gets "fed" 1-2 times daily, about 5 pellets each.
I have yet to get an ammonia reading, or any reading for that matter. I haven't been testing every day, but every 3-4 or so and have yet to see anything change. Am I doing something wrong? I'd really like to get Powerball moved out of the Kritter Keeper and in to his new tank.
Oh, and I noticed that the heater and suction cup thermometer have this weird white, wispy stuff hanging off them. What could it be?
I also have to add water about once a week, it seems to evaporate really fast here.
Thanks for any advise you can give!
