    It's still possible if there is a massive growth of microorganisms that take up ammonia, not as an energy source, but a nitrogen source...

    Yep, you got it. :D And yep, that's why some people have to do heaps of water changes, dose Prime, stock slowly, etc., and may still...

    Yes but only if something is consuming the nitrate. Unfortunately seems like we do not have evidence of that here. I am not super...

    Oh well, there goes my theory I editted in my last reply. XD Though doing a 100% water change and dosing 2ppm ammonia is still not a...

    How are your plants doing? Are they growing well? [EDIT] I'll just expand on my thoughts. Plants utilize nitrate, so it is possible...

    Ah. That's what I had presumed. Yeah Seachem Stability contains both nitrifiers and non-nitrifiers, likely the non-nitrifiers are just...

    Hallo thar! Welcome to the hobby! That's okay. I've been in the hobby for ten years. Still not ready for plants yet lol. So it seems...

    Sorry, I missed your reply on the fish-in cycling. In that case, yes once both ammonia and nitrite hits zero, your tank is cycled. My...
  • Azedenkae
    Depends on how you define a cycled tank. If just a matter of ammonia and nitrite going away after a single dose of ammonia, then yes. I...
  • Azedenkae
    It just depends on the nitrification capacity you ultimately want. 1ppm is enough for standard tanks, even with a good amount of...

    It just means the rate of nitrite oxidation is equal to or greater than the rate at which nitrite is produced. Can occur.

    Because there are things you cannot test. Yes there are plenty of people who do not do water changes for a longggg time. Myself...
