    New Tank Help! Cycling using Seachem

    I saw it during my cycle. I also saw a phase where Nitrites stayed really high after my tank began rapidly consuming ammonia. AS a PP said, every cycle is different. Its easy to get bogged down in what "should be" happening, but sometimes tanks don't follow the rules.

    37 gal bowfront advice

    Finally got my tank cycled! so far I have 6 bronze Cory 2 pearl gourami I think I want to add: a schooling fish- looking at 8 cherry barbs I would like one more “flashy” type fish. I am thinking maybe 2-3 honey gourami, a pair of apisto, or a pair of rams. what do you guys think?

    Can very low GH stall a cycle?

    Just wanted to update one more time. I ended up with 6 juvenile bronze corys and 2 young pearl gourami. They were gorgeous and only $3.50 each so I couldn’t pass. Everyone has settled in well. so far water chemistry is perfect. 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 10 nitrate the last 2 days!

    Can very low GH stall a cycle?

    sorry, I just saw this. Nitrate levels stay between 20 and 40. I think my plants are helping to control that. They are growing like crazy. Still working on establishing the cycle, but I think things are getting better. The nitrite test seems to be a little less purple at 24 hrs, and is still...

    Help what’s next on my cycling

    the math is way simpler. If it were a hard amount of ammonia, say in grams, your math would be correct, but PPM is concentration data, so in this case we need to do the math for a dilution, and 3 gal to 30 gallons is a 10x dilution, so if you started with 40 ppm, you end up with 4pmm, which...

    Can very low GH stall a cycle?

    Just wanted to report back. It is still taking more than for me to see nitrites drop to zero. Last night I had zero ammonia just under 2 ppm nitrite and 40 ppm nitrate 24hrs after dosing 1 pmm ammonia. If the pattern holds, by the time i get home to check we will be at zero nitrites. Should I...
