My Eheim Opal 120 arrived the other day.
3 side Starphire glass
Added hardscape and substrate (ADA Amazonia)....
Added the plants (don't ask me what they all are, I know there is swords, hairgrass, HC, and Riccia in there)
So... time to let it settle and cycle, hopefully none of the plants will dislodge.
After it's cycled, I will be migrating the fish from my old tank (200L 4ft).
Running an Eheim 2215, and adding a secon (from old tank) once fish are moved over.
And... day 3...
Ammonia levels at about 4ppm
Currently at day 6 and noticing brown dusty algae (diatoms), also some white growth forming on the substrate and on the glass and cloudiness of water (water has been clear till now). I'm thinking bacterial bloom?
Ammonia levels at about 1ppm
Currently on a 50% daily water change
