Hello people, I just got a 60g tank on Mar 20 right. I started with a fair amount of plants, all beginner low light. Im using a shop light from Walmart raised about 12" above the tank, no top.
My tank today: Tank readings yesterday:
Ammonia .25 ppm A 0ppm
Nitrites .50 ppm. NO2 .25ppm
Nitrates 10 ppm. NO3 5ppm
The day before last 03/26my ammonia was at .25 no2 @ .25 and my no3 @ 5ppm which was the day I added driftwood from a previous tank
I changed about 30% water last night so my question is, do I need to change more water to get the ammonia down? or is it not done cycling yet?
I added 10 minnows over the course of 5 days but 5 remain. This is the first time I've cycled a tank this way; before I have just used a frozen shrimp in a mesh bag or something and it took about a month
Also I'm not sure if my plants are growing or dying lol
