Day 9 of my first ever tank and no casualties!
Okay, so one shrimp is missing in action, but not confirmed dead yet. No body, no crime!
I've used fluval cycle and have been changing 25-50% of water every few days. Showing a little bit of ammonia (from the tropica soil?), but no nitrite or nitrate. I'm guessing the zero nitrate is from either dodgy test strips or plants absorbing it all. I'm using a maidenhead aquatics test kit for ammonia and nitrite, and damn my eyes it's hard to differentiate the shades of yellow.
All seems well so far, but I wonder if this is the same as being a new dad - it sleeps through the night for the first couple of days, and then is a noisy little swine for ages!
Any advice always gladly appreciated.

Lovely tank :)

(It’s common for fish and shrimp to mange to get into the filter compartment, and continue to return after a daring rescue by yourself (and daughter) ;))

But don’t add anymore fish for at least another 4 weeks (no matter what your daughter says, or your lfs promises :angelic:)
