well sorry folks but my tank seems AIT. got home, and its little white cloudy but i can still see the background of tank(my tank is 30" wide).
and i smell nothing.

i checked water, ammonia is 0.5-1ppm, nitrite is 0.25ppm.
i guess cycle started without me...
anyway i added 4ppm of ammonia from ace.
see what happens tomorrow...

btw, my PH was real high of 8.4. real bad for plants?
i just got co2, so plan to lower this to 6.8 eventually.

My girlfriend always makes thinks seem worse than they are when she text me something about my tank. Like "I think you're shrimp are dying" every time it's a molt!
