    Aqueon Pure Bacteria Supplement

    It takes me to the thread I wrote but the link in it where it says "Mod edit: This article has been superseded - please see this thread on fishless cycling" doesn't work. It makes me log in even though I'm already logged in and when I do, it takes me to a page that says "Your account does not...

    Aqueon Pure Bacteria Supplement

    That's it BTT. But the link to the new thread is dead. It takes me to a page where it asks me to log in but when I do I get "Your account does not have admin privileges".

    Ammonia postive, Nitrite negative, Nitrate positive

    As Essjay said, test your tap water. Your readings are probably coming from there. Aquasafe is only a dechlorinator and won't do anything to help cycle your tank and establish the bacteria colony you need to process fish waste. That can only be established in 2 ways: 1) with fish and water...

    Aqueon Pure Bacteria Supplement

    My son bought some of that to use for the 29 gallon he's setting up. Don't know how it's worked yet though as he just put it in the tank on Saturday.

    He had not as the one that was pinned when I last posted was actually the one I wrote in like 2005 or so (linked in my signature but apparently no longer working and the post may have been removed).

    Not really a newbie

    As the post title states, I'm not really a newbie here but I think the last time I posted was in something like 2011. It's been a while. After all that time, I'm setting my 75 gallon back up and getting back into the hobby. Looking forward to having wet pets again. And hope to maybe run into...

    Aqueon Pure Bacteria Supplement

    It's been a LONG time since I posted here but I am setting my 75 gallon back up after 10+ years of having nothing but water in it. I have everything ready for fish with the exception of cycling it. I've had ammonia in it for a little over a week but no drop yet. Since it has been running the...

    Forum Time

    Appears to be right back to about 7 minutes fast. I have 7:01 PM and it shows 7:08. Odd that it gets to 7 minutes quickly and then keeps normal from there without getting any farther off.

    Forum Time

    This has been a constant problem going back for over a year. I know Tolak has reset the close numerous times only to have it happen again. Oddly enough, it seems to gain that 5 to 8 minutes back quickly and then run normally.

    Some Questions For My First Tank

    If you haven't been testing your water, how do you know that all is well and good? In actuality, ANY ammonia or nitrite reading in a tank with fish in it is too high, whether that be .1 ppm or 5 ppm, it indicates that the tank isn't cycled and there is a problem.
