    Hubby reminded me that we did add Seachem Stability just prior to adding the sacrificial fish for the fish-in cycle... so am sure that is what helped the initial cycling.

    Thanks for mentioning. I'm going to order some, and hopefully that will help with my BCB's. I was thinking about adding some, but wanted to try without. That doesn't seem to be working though, so Seachems to the rescue... Cheers Heather

    That would be interesting indeed, a guy over here even tried to get it sent direct from India where there are vast deposits of the stuff!

    No, just tap. I think it'll suit domestic bred discus fine. pH8 (aged), GH7, KH5.

    hello all,

    just wondering if AFS would interfere with medicating the tank? because the cat litter we use here is mainly from zeolite so would this absorb/neutralize medication like praziquantel that's used to treat fluke/worm?

    Thx

    I am not an expert but i imagine zeolite being capable of attracting ammonia molecule and then break nitrogen - hydrogen bond and eventually free nitrogen gas ,it is capable of interfere with medication ,i would prefer to treat fish with praziquantel in a hospital tank ,that is my opinion but i am sure others will chime in .

    Nothing really exciting, except for me. A picture of my nitrite reading. It's gone through the roof now. Off the scale and ammonia dropped to about 2ppm. Will top up again tomorrow or day after.
