Just an update on the planted 55.
Things are not doing well... The plants did not take well to the ammonia added for cycling. Everything looks pretty much dead. The Java Fern might make it... but yeah... pretty bummed.
The good news is Chelsea pointed out that I could use media from my gf tank to cycle when I'm ready (can anyone say DUH!!!)! So I'm going to start over probably. Now I know what does work in my water as long as I don't mess up anything with the water (as in AMMONIA) heh. I'll update when I place an order on plants.
