New Tank Acclimation Phase I

This is a follow-up to “Holiday Aquarium Purchasing” published on December 9, 2009; this is the second article in the series “New Aquarium”.

Our setup for the 10:view tank included an Aqua Clear 20 filter, a Stealth 100 heater and 2.5″ of Fluorite Black substrate. We also bought a Master Water Test kit; our kit is the API Master Kit. It was a crucial part of the cycling process as we needed to know the baseline ph of our tap water as well as some chemical levels present in the water on a daily basis. In addition to the master test kit, we purchased GH – general water hardness test solution and kH – carbonate hardness test solution. {read more . . .}
