View Full Version : When to start feeding phyto?

I already have the first shipment of rocks, which has tons of awesome filter feeders on it. I'm sure some of them won't survive in aquariums, but I would like to keep as many alive as possible.

When can I start feeding phytoplankton, or other liquid foods, to the tank? The sand has been in for a week and a half, and the rocks have been in for three days. Ammonia is still barely detectable... I would guess it's at 0.1 ppm, as the pure yellow you get on the test with 0 ppm just has the slightest green tint to it, not nearly enough to get the next official color for 0.5 ppm.
