    Oh I understand.I guess Its not a must for my tank at the moment since my tank is been cycling for about a month.My external filter contains Eheim substrat pro and i guess it contains good bacterias..
    Also was Allisa suggesting Seachem stability ? I didnt get that part too. Since there were too many people's voice and was hard to hear her.
    Thanls

    Purigen is a synthetic filter medium that does a great job of absorbing organics out of the water. With a high PH, high temperature tank, Ammonia is highly toxic, so the purigen helps prevent ammonia spikes.

    For the leaves, she said "fruit tree leaves". I'm currently using Guava leaves in my tank, although the jury is still out on how good my tank is working. The leaves are there to provide cover (since most sulawesi are shy) and to provide nutrients for the slime that shrimp like to eat.

    Stability is to kick off the cycling process.

    Hello again,
    I have one important question and if you can answer I will be muchly appriciated..
    The problem is;
    The formation started to appear on my driftwood.Its like white colored cotton algea.I know it occurs if your driftwood is not old or already used in a tank before.But this is almost a 1 year old being used redmoore.
    The important question is; Will this make harm to Cardinals?
    Also My new water parameters are;
    Ph:8,2
    KH:7
    GH:6
    TDS : not sure ..
    Temp:28,5 C
    What do you people think about my new parameters?
    Thanks
