Comments This tank is halfway to Walstad. I give it two weeks or more between water changes, and overfeed my livestock. Zero ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate due to unknown combination of the kitty litter (binding the ammonia?), choice of plants (duckweed + hornwort + elodea), and lighting (16 on, 8 off 1WPG). No black beard or green hair algae yet after two months. Currently thinking about a new 10G to house some of the overflow livestock.
