I'm trying to cycle my first planted tank. Algae is getting a little out of control.
It's a Spec V. I want to use this primarily for shrimp and a few small fish. Ammonia and nitrites aren't really coming down. Did about a 20% water change today and it looks better. The water I removed had a yellow tint to it.
I got a TDS pen and the gh/kh kit in the mail Monday so I checked it today. TDS was 350, tap water is 150. Tested gh and kh today. kh took 5 drops and gh took 12. I don't really know what that means, the directions weren't that clear.
