48hrs into cycle, rate my water please
well, i am 48 hours into putting my tank together and i am curious to see how things are going and get some advice
29 gallon aquarium (standard light for now)
300w stealth heater
Rena XP2 cannister filter(with carbon, bio stars and Matrix bio support media)
3 to 5 inches of http://www.aquariumplants.com/product_p/ss-1.htm
and 1 fake piece of driftwood(got tired of getting outbid on ebay)
NO FISH OR PLANTS YET
Everything was WELL rinsed before it entered the tank
Water test results as of 48 hours:
Water temp 78deg
Does this all sound normal?
I was a little worried at the GH reading, should i be?
thank you for the time in your responses
