Tank has been up for 15 days. Still waiting for cycle to finish. Ammonia (edit ammonia is safe, was reading scale wrong) and Nirites still running high. Nitrates at 10. Water is still discolored from the driftwood. I soaked the wood before putting it in but I guess it wasn't long enough. Hopefully it will go back clear in time and after some water changes (shouldI take wood out and soak it more?). Anyone know what the ghostly white looking mucus is inlast pic? It's on a few parts of the wood. Also looking for a light that would rise from the back of the tank instead of the side. Hate how the wire hangs. Let me know if you have any ideas on lights. Also added a Anubias nana on the driftwood.
EDIT- also started using Excel and Flourish Comprehensive. Plan on getting some shrimp in a week or 2. CRS or Cherry or both.
