*knocks on wood*
In all honesty, I'm not worried about Amonia spiking. If all of the bacteria in the 180lbs of sand and on the 450lbs of rock i have in the tank can't take care of it (haven't detected amonia in over 2 years)...I'll worry then lol.
But I did test it today, before it cleared up fully....no noticable difference in nitrates. I'm not sure if it's because it's part of the process, or if the fish just produce THAT much crap where it didn't dent it or the regular production of waste counteracted the bloom.
*shrugs* Here's hoping.
