    hi members, since my last post i have completed the cycling process of my tank took (32 days) 0 ppm ammonia and 0 ppm nitrites.

    i have added a boyu wg-308 skimmer half way during the cycling process (working perfectly)

    Hey dude, it's called diatoms... don't worry - it's all part of the cycling process. It'll go away eventually provided that your maintenance doesn't slip.

    Enjoy!
