I thought i would share the data set for a new Paludarium Water Cycle for those who like to see Nitrogen Cycle Data and compare their own readings to others.

This is a planted Paludarium using a Fish In Cycle. I used the API Liquid Test Kit almost everyday to ensure the safety of the animals. There are two image sets below of data. The first is the API findings and the second is the log the data set is using with notes. This way you guys can see when water changes were performed etc...

Animals were added 3 days after water was put in the tank. I will post the specs of the tank below the data images.

It's 2022. You have the means not to torture animals in your care with ammonia and nitrite. Yet you chose to do so anyway and advertise it on the world's largest repository of planted tank information.

Guess it's fitting that you tried to obscure your IP address and identity while doing so.

Unfortunately, you'll need to take your story elsewhere. Trolling isn't permitted.
