    I was surprised myself but also miffed that if it didn't kill my cycle maybe there remains bad stuff that it didn't kill also.

    I can only conclude the Anoxic filter must have took up the slack because my parameters were also untouched after double dosing FMG and after a 4 hour PP treatment.

    Yet here we are many months later and I keep getting small Ammonia readings yet I've not put any chemicals in the pond, just food. The recent small drop in temperature must have made the difference.

    You are absolutely right Fred, more the better, I had 2 big sack load of Alfagrogs and I chucked the whole lot in the 3 tier bakki shower that John made for me, come spring they will be mature and ready to kick the daylight out of Nitrite and Ammonia
    Human life is truly a short affair. It is better to live doing the things that you like Inazo Nitobe

    5 months to mature. But it has never let me down. Since lol.
