    Hi all,
    Just got my first tank for 7 years.
    Taking my time.
    The tank is 91cm L x 39cm H x 30cm D.
    JBL CristalProfi 702 filter ordered.
    Thinking low tech (no Co2 injection atm)
    My favourite plant is Micranthemum Monte Carlo.
    The rest TBC.

    Mornin!
    Up at half five, not for a cupp just yet...race (ohh I cant race...but you know what I mean!! roflmao)
    Settling in on my 2nd cuppa and my brekki, and thought,hope the plants come today.
    At the same time i'm doing at 9, to my local shop only a mile away.
    Hoping for Java moss or similar for at least I could tackle the trees n rock...think that'll if not a PITA later on.
    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! maybe my new lamp will come (est. about 11:30 am) so pics TBC.
    I intend the old Ammonia fishless cycle, reading back from 2012-13 log...OMG I was crackers lol...mind nowts changed. apart from 7 years older roflmao.
    As some know I stuggle with coms, specially numbers, volumes & weights.
    So any help with my Ammonia dosage be really appreciated.
    Wil have 96L to treat, vaguly remember so many PPM and 2ml? somewhere....but that was a larger tank.
    Tried a ammonia calc, but might aswell be in Klingon :censored2:
    Treating with Dr Tim's ammonia chloride (think 2% :book:).
    Anyways, get my hair combed, Brut for men on and fire up the chariot ( dusting of my mobilty scooter!) hope it doesn't rain... :rofl:
    Catch you later.
