What is the highest that your Ammonia got?
What media do you have in the aquaclear 30?
what are you planning to add?
Ammo was at 1.0 at its highest. 5 days after flooding tank.
I just removed carbon from filter and left bio max and sponge in.
Planning to add? As In what exactly?
Just stock your tank very slowly. Add 3/4 smaller fish and let the bacteria grow to support it (few weeks) and then continue with that until you are stocked to your desire. Just go slow.
That's what I was thinking about doing, but was confused by my numbers and stuff.
