Root Tabs = Yellow water?
So I cycled my tank for about a week (introduced left over bottle bacteria and an old filter from another aquarium) with plants. Everything is fine.
After leveling off at 0 ammonia, 0 nitrates, ~20ppm nitrates:
I lowered the water to a few inches, rescaped, added root tabs. Filled back up and added fertilizers and co2. The water is yellow after a day. Fish seem fine and the stats above remain constant.
Could it be the root tabs causing this? BTW Currently have 9 neon tetras... so not much bioload.
