I always test for ammonia and nitrite before adding any livestock to a new Aqua Soil set-up. I only add livestock when they are undetecable levels, usually after 2-3 weeks.SteveUK said:Out of interest, what are people's opinions on when to stock the tank, bearing in mind the AS/amonia issue?

Dan Crawford said:Hi mate, i'm glad you've chosen them, they are stunning fish and will suite your scape down to the ground, or substrate LOL
Are you going to be ordering them in especially? If so then i should imagine that the store will be ha[[y to keep 15 back for you for a week or so, after all, it's in the best interest of the fish....
Youve got a big filter on there and mature media, if it clears up the ammonia in a week then i'd say it can cope with the extra bioload of all 30 fish, they really are small.
SteveUK said:Oh, on the glassware front, I've been looking for cheap and cheerful lily pipes. These are the best I can find for the price (look better than some of the ones on eBay). Bit worried about ordering from a random company though! I'm sure I've bought from Fish-Street via eBay before though...
I'd love to get the Cal-Aqua set... I could possibly stretch to 1 set, but 2...
