Cycling is goin ok levels as of today are ph 7.8 ammonia 0.25 ppm nrite 0ppm nrate 2.5 ppm.i got the shrimp in the tank now no doa mixed sizes and it seems there doing good.the glofish dont bother them from what ive seen ill post pics tonight.for the tank only running for 1 week exactly i think its coming together well
Well that's good to hear, just keep an eye out on them levels. At one week I doubt your tank is fully cycled. You wouldn't want that ammonia to all the sudden spike and it kill off your shrimp or fish. Shrimp are more sensitive than fish.
Ok thanks again for everything.when doing water changes for high ammonia should i do 50% or more. Or less?????i plan on doing water changes every 10 days. i take 2 gals out and replenish it with freshwater from petco it comes in 2gal containers and is a lot better for the fish and shrimp i think EDIT WELL IM HAVING A PROBLEM TODAY. I LOOKED IN THE TANK TO CHECK THINGS OUT AND ALL THE GLOFISH WERE ATTACKING THE LARGEST SHRIMP IN THE TANK.. AS SOON AS I SAW THIS I REMOVED GLOFISH PUT THEM IN THE BAGS AND WENT TO THE PET SHOP.THE SHRIMP IS DOING OK I THINK ONLY COULD COUNT 9 I STARTED WITH 12
