Never said it did, however the OP said he's reading 0 ammonia and nitrates. Just trying to offer some possibilities as to why he's only seeing nitrites.

Not disagreeing here, I think we're all on the same page now. I just think perhaps we should all (all hobbyists, I mean, not just us in this thread) stop referring to it as ammania at this point. As...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see an issue here. IMO .25 PPM is hardly a concern/spike. Even if it went up to .5, I don't think you'd have an issue, unless you start to notice signs of stress in...

But It's not an ammania. It IS rotala, and I've been using their scientific names, not their common ones. That's all I'm saying.

Before you edited your OP, you were not sure whether you had r....

That pH is a little crazy. I'd test the ph from your tap and compare it to your ph in tank again. If ph in tank is indeed much higher than what's coming from the tap, then that might point to maybe...

No, after more reading, I don't believe that is correct. Ammania sp. 'bonsai' is the misnomer for true rotala indica. The issue is that r. rotundifolia has been/is being sold as r. indica, and true...

My 2 cents, dry starts aren't limited to high tech set ups, however the plants in your list wouldn't really benefit from this method so much.

Hm... r. indica grows like a weed for me both emersed and immersed. If it had been grown emersed, the leaves will be much more round (indian tooth cup) and thick.

Considering most plants we use in our tanks our equatorial, 12 hrs is not really unreasonable either. But 24 is really not necessary, most plants prefer a normal diurnal cycle.

snails only over populate when food is abundant. Make sure you're not overfeeding and keeping your tank clean and they'll stay in more manageable numbers. I <3 my snails, tho.
