It's been interesting to see how this soil evolves.
It's the Amazonia "Nature Tank" version.
Here we are at day #18 of cycle and suddenly the usual pH of 7.5 is now 6.5. The two tubes on the left are pH tests. The dark blue is usual result, the much lighter color is from AS tank.
A bit on the acidic side is a good thing, right?
I don't know how this drop will affect fishy so I swapped out some of his 7.5 tank water with some of the 6.5 new tank water. Don't know if it's necessary but seems like a good idea?
BTW the ammonia & nitrite levels pictured are from Rigel's current tank - but the new tank is soooooooo close. No ammonia, nitrites above zero but below .25 ppm, nitrate 5 ppm maybe it's ready? But that's a different post.
The way that AS leeched ammonia If I didn't have a day gig I'd say my occupation is professional water changer
