I'm new to having a an aquarium thing. now i have a 30L tank (9 gallon) have set up a pump and heater.
now i live in a remote part of aus. I have a rain water tank that is approx 3m (10 foot) x 3m (10 foot) and is about 6m (19 Foot) Deep. now there used to be a tree that dropped leaves onto the roof but i have cut that away, but there is a few inches thick of sticks leaves and stuff on the bottom of the tank, mosquitoes love it, but is it all possible that the water in the tank has done a natural cycle.
I only have strips to test.
but the hardness is fine, then ph level is about 6 - 6.5 the nitrate and nitrites are always 0 even after not changing the water for days. don't have ammonia test might get the pet store to test it.
thanks for any info.
oh i have 2 small plants in the tank.
