I'm getting so excited, it's been such a long process. The excitment kind of wore off for a while but it's back
I've been using fish food, and I grew some water fleas and nematodes I think. o-o
Nitrite: 0.25 (dropped from 5ppm since Saturday?!)
Is my nitrate reading too low? Most people get it in the 80's.. Or could the hornwort be doing that? I've never had too high ammonia thanks to it, I don't know where all the nitrite came from..
Should it be ready by tomorrow or Thursday? There's a boy at the mall with ick, and I am desperate to put Gilbert in there to free up a hospital tank.
Edit: also, I have aquired quite the collection of water fleas and nematodes. This is from the food right? (Gilbert loves nematodes, won't have to feed him for a while after putting him in!)
Yes, I am hoping to do a 75% change tomorrow. If my nirtrItes hit zero does that mean it's time for a water change and fish? It'll just be one betta for now anyways. I'll be sure to sift through the sand for food, since it is a sand bottom.
