Not to speak for them, but sometimes things get so busy that it's easy to get overwhelmed. Mistakes happen, and it sucks when it does. But usually the customer ends up ahead when a mistake is made, at least with my style of handling similar circumstances.
I can understand that! We're only human. Besides, aren't you guys (afa,ADG) pretty much the only ADA distributors?
Hey guys. Just a quick update.
Picked up a trio of Dario Dario(Scarlet Badis) from msjinxed. I was lucky enough to meet her where she picks up her stock. The fish were in great health even after being in a bag for a few days. I urge anyone who is interested in micro fish to look her up. Anyway, I plan on flooding this tank this weekend and if all goes well add the fish as well. For filtration I will probably use a Red Sea nano HOB for now. Although, I think that it it doesn't house enough media. Speaking of media, I'm just going to take some matrix out of my Eheim stuff it in the HOB. THats pretty much it. I'll take a shot once its filled this weekend.
Update. Starting to see diatom algae and did some testing a few days ago. High nitrites and ammonia seems to be on the decline. Shouldn't be long before cycle is complete. I didn't realize I would still have to cycle after dry-starting a tank. I would assume all my bacteria would have been established by now. Kind of weird. I even put some media from my filter into this filter and still had high ammonia. Must be the Aquasoil. I've heard it was nutrient rich but this is ridiculous! Plants are growing very well and I'm almost due for a trim. I think my light levels are just right. High enough for medium plant growth but low enough that algae does not get out of control. Here's a pic from yesterday.
