I decided to put my questions in one thread, though I'm sure I'll think of some later.
I tested the amount of ammonia in the tank this morning and it read 0, but I suppose that is because of the plants. I got a reading for a small amount of nitrite but no nitrate yet. Am I putting in enough fish food? How far through the cycle can I expect different readings?
The chlorine reading is lower than yesterday so I'm less worried about that.
The water in my tank is getting greener and murkier by the day and I'm a bit worried about this and I've now got the filter on full power. Is there anything I can do or should I just leave it?
Also something that occurred to me: In my area there is a lot of limestone in our water supply, could that effect any of the readings? The GH reading is really high.
