Things like that are hard to get here on the Algarve, the store I got it from is quite a way from me and dont go there a lot.

sometimes they have it and when you go back they are not selling it anymore.
thats what I have to deal with here.

You can always try finding playground sand. I have no idea if you'll have access to it, but hardware stores and construction supply stores around here often sell it. You would have to rinse it a lot but it does work well in aquariums. I have some in my big one because aquarium sand was much too expensive.

Ammonia: 0.25ppm

Havent done a water test for a few days after changing water.
I have just read water and found the following:
Ammonia= 0.5ppm
nitrate=0ppm


So I guess the rule of thumb is a 50%WC for a reading of 0.5ppm in ammonia.

Once I introduce the filter into bowl, how long before I can put Mister back in??
as the filter by that time would have been in cycled tank for 3 weeks.

You can put him in right away. There's no need to wait.
