I am pretty sure the bacteria in your mouth are outcompeting ammonia and nitrate bacteria.

My anacharis order is out of quarantine and I've added it to my tank. It was a lot more than I thought it it was, haha! I'll check my water parameters on Wednesday and we'll see if it helped with that last little bit of ammonia. (: The good news is that I'm down to just two plastic plants - that sword looking one there in the middle (the shorter one with the "pretty" leaves is live wisteria, though) and a fake moneywort looking plant that you can't even really see anymore.

This is a little late, but I'm happy to report that my ammonia level is down to zero. My nitrates are still about 5ppm which I find weird considering I have so many plants, but I'm not going to question it.

In the end, I think it was definitely the plants that got the rest of the ammonia out. I mostly have anacharis, but also some wisteria, a good bit of hornwort, about three small stems of bacopa caroliniana, two marimo balls and some duckweed. Yay stem plants! :D

You can grow your lucky bamboo through a hole in the lid.

Oh that? That was a gift for my roommate. It's in her room now and she doesn't keep fish. It's doing pretty well though!
