Update on the Amazonia II (good)

I wanted to let everyone know that not all of the ASA Amazonia II is always bad... Since Saturday the 12th when I put it all in, I have been doing very large water changes twice a day. I put all the plants in on Sunday and they all seem to be doing good. No melting or browning. I have snails in there now as the ammonia levels were high at first. Today when I check my parameters, everything has leveled out and seem good. I will wait for another week or so before adding a fish or two.

Here are the numbers as of an hour ago...

ammonia - 0
nitrIte - 0
nitrAte - 0
GH - 5 drops (pleases me cause before the Amazonia it was 11 drops)
KH - 4 drops ( same as above before)
pH - still holding at 7.0 to 7.2

I'm hoping that it all stays stable for awhile. I really don't want what the other thread is all about where his pH is now extremely low at 5.5. I feel extremely lucky that my Amazonia II didn't turn to a nasty mush as others had. EXTREMELY LUCKY !!

I took pictures, but the camera battery went dead so I can't get them off until later if anyone wants to see.
