    Keep a tank cyled

    I started cycling a tank about 5 weeks ago, before the lockdown. The tank has nearly finished cycling now and is almost ready for livestock. I was wondering if since my lfs is only doing essentials and not allowing the sale of livestock could I use my bottled ammonia to keep the tank cycled. I...

    Everything dying in an established tank

    I have a 9 month old tank. Last week I turned off my return pump overnight due to a plumbing problem. I have a refugium with lots of macro growing in it.

    Ammonia Concern

    I had my biggest snail die on me. It’s probably been 2 days since, and I finally decided to check, and sure enough he was dead. I pulled out the main parts, but some of his body when flying throughout the tank. Should I be concerned about ammonia rising?
