  1. I suddenly have a small amount of ammonia in my tank after a water change. My tap ammonia is 0, and I usually never have ammonia in my tank. The only thing that I can think of is that I used a little more prime than usual. Is prime known to cause a false ammonia reading?
  2. If you are like me, you have many things plugged into surge protector strips under your tank. My cords sometimes get tangled, or I just can't track which cord goes to which appliance. Instead of unplugging each one and watching what goes off, an easy way to keep things identified under there is by color coding. You can recycle those old twist ties from bread bags, etc... just twist a different colored tie on the plug end of each appliance, and you can either just write down what color goes to what appliance on a piece of paper and keep that handy, or you can tie a tie of the same color somewhere visible (but not unsightly) on that appliance. the same idea can be used with nail polish, or yarn, etc...
