Finally... Increasing Nitrates!!

Ok I just tested the Ammonia and Nitrates and finally got an increase in nitrates to about 5.0 so i expect this to gradually continue to rise over the next few days, Im still feeding the tank with fish food so we'll see.
As for the Ammonia its reading 0 which is great considering the handfuls of Amazonia i dumped in last night (Which causes high ammonia spikes). This suggest that the Bacteria is growing fast enough to convert the ammonia additions.. Also i noticed some green algae showing up which is a good sign.

Also the Fungus still appears to be dying back, hopefully the waterlogging of the driftwood is coming to an end as well.
