deff not my tank in the second pic amd i cycled it for 1 mo before the fish got here introduced them and bam all the cycle spiked i started doing 20% water changes daily noticed my ph went up so i checked tap water and it was over 8 ph !!! it was a deep deep purple on the test ! so for now on the water i use for water change is coming from a empty qurantene tank !!! i also ordered the ati ph up and down kit !!!

i think the temps where im at kill alot of the natural bacteria in the air and tap water so it basically made my cycling useless i guess lesson learned -10 or below outside inhibits bacteria for cycling !! and the newfin bac suplement is useless !

i miss having a ciclid as big as my hand that acts as its own bio load lol !!
