Default Re: Setting up a new 29gal NPT

Thank you Diana! I did a ~30% water change last night (hard to do more with the RO system), but just ran out of drops in my ammonia test bottle #2 so not sure of the current reading until I can get another. I'll keep checking and changing and anxiously awaiting more plants! I may throw some duckweed in from a nearby pond if I can figure out a good way to corral it.

The water is definitely clearer but there is a white haze on all the glass. The pest snails eat it, but just make tiny little tracks, not really helpful. I rubbed some of it off during the water change. I think this is okay and normal? Or does it suggest too much light? I remember in my last tank once I got a Nerite I had no more issues with stuff on the glass!
