I have to politely disagree. As other posters have mentioned, you haven't been adding any ammonia source so it it's impossible to have a cycled tank. Unfortunately the last twenty days have likely...

While I understand and appreciate your idea, I just don't think it matters that much. Adding ferts directly into the main outlet line will certainly mix them well, but a properly setup tank will do...

To help with the "cloudy" water question: Obviously this isn't a guaranteed system, but it can help. If it's foggy or milky, then tell them to take a cup of tank water and let it sit out for 24...

Ok, I hear you. But still, can you not get access to any used media from another tank? Even buying some plants would jump start it if you didn't wash them.

Azoo makes a pretty basic regulator. They are cheap, but seem to have more positive reviews than negative. I think it will suffice. People can, and do, upgrade the needle valve. That's the little...
