Man, I'd heard amazonia leaches ammonia, but wow... :eek5: maxes out the api chemical test. I checked this morning and it was maxed, did a big water change, just checked again and it's right back up there. Nitrite is still about zero, nitrates are also through the roof (showing at least 160 ppm), phosphates are basically nil, and pH is around 6.4 or 6.0.

I think I might be starting my cycle... ;)
Haha did you actually need to add any ammonia or did the tank cycle itself using just the Amazonia?

Congrats on the awesome looking tank! :thumbsup:
