Waterbox 10 gallon tank
This is my first journal and second tank. Im hoping to get this up and running for a pea puffer.
Waterbox 10 gallon
Aquatop 118gph pump that came with the tank
Cobalt 100w heater
Finnex 16" Stingray (temporary, being replaced with a Fluval Nano)
InkBird 306t temperature controller
Ohko stone hard scape
Nilocg Gh booster
Im hoping to get my plants in a few days, mostly crypts and dwarf sag.
im mixing 6.5 grams of gh booster and 2.3 grams of potassium carbonate per 5 gallons of water. If im using rotala butterfly right that should give me a gh of around 5-6 and a kh of almost 5.
I filled the tank last night, turned on the heater, put a piece of leaf litter and a good squeeze from the sponge filter from my well established shrimp tank and some ammonia then let it sit. This morning i tested gh/kh/ph, gh was spot on between 5 and 6, kh was at around 3, ph was WAY off at 8.4+ im hoping that after the cycle everything evens out.
EDIT: Can't seem to get images to work ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
EDIT 2: I figured it out
