seahawkshos040 Update: A lot of new growth. added some bacopa, a moss ball, some new manzanita and a few grasses. also added 8 cherry shrimp, which are my favorite to watch (if i can find any of them).

seahawkshos040 how often do you recommend I fert at this point?

seahawkshos040 I have a small amount of typical new tank green algae on the glass. I fertilized about 4 days ago with flourish along with a small dose of seachem macros. still trying to find the right balance. going through a mini cycle right now from the upgrade to a larger tank. ammonia is at 0 but my nitrites were around 1ppm before todays 30% pwc. been adding prime on occasion to lessen the adverse effects of the nitrites. plenty of nitrates so hopefully this stabilizes soon..
