Those straight tears are often caused by excess flaring.
Yes it is straight tears. It's been a few days and i have done 2 50% water changes. I added StressCoat+ this morning. The tears are still there.
I also have had a few days of very slight ammonia (just under .25) due to the snail i think.
I will probably do another 50% change tomorrow. If i have screwed up my cycle when will I know for sure? Or, how long will the slight ammonia spike last before it drops back down?
