    This morning at 8:45 my ammonia was at .50 ppm and just a little bit ago when I got home at 6 my level is still at .50 ppm. As of this morning everything in the tank looked great and just getting home I noticed some web-like stuff sloughing off my plants. It's white or translucent. I looked it up where some people suspected thread algae or hair algae and some even wondering fungus. It's only on my plants, which aren't looking very hot btw, and I'm wondering because of that if it might be fungus! What do you think? I'm about to chunk all these plants in fear of something infesting my tank that's not algae! Thanks

    Hey there! I could use some advice. I got my tank set up Saturday got a little impatient and got a couple plants from lfs to put in my tank. I've read where people have done a tank cycle with plants so I tried it. I have filter starter balls i put in my canister filter that are suppose to have live bacteria in them (they came as a bonus with my media) and have added proper doses of API Quick start and Stress Coat + to condition water, boost bacteria, and dechlorinate. As of yesterday I started adding pure ammonia in small doses and checking levels to get around 2-3 ppm reading. between 7p and 11p I added 50ml and 2 hours later at 1am I finally had a 2ppm reading.
